The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) is organizing a temporary multi-media public art exhibition that furthers community dialogue about racial justice, as the County’s Remembrance and Reconciliation Commission (The Commission) works to establish a memorial for African Americans who were lynched in Montgomery County.
The project is proposed to be located in the area of Courthouse Square in Rockville (approximately at Jefferson and Maryland Avenues), a location that is central to the story of racial justice in the County — in particular three lynchings that occurred in that area in the late 1800s.
The project is planned for presentation on the first weekend of November 2021. AHCMC is seeking artists from the region to prepare works that could be presented primarily through the media of projection (still, video, projection mapping) on public buildings in the area.
Artists are NOT required to have experience in projection media as they will be working with our Creative Consultant, Robin Bell of BellVisuals.
