Arts Council sculptures for 2015

    Once again you are seeing the latest sculptures from the Howard County Arts Council around our County.  Here is some information on this year's sculptures and some photos:
    "Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is pleased to announce the 13 sites and sculptures selected for ARTsites 2015, its fourth annual public art initiative in Howard County, MD. The sculptures will be installed in August 2015 and will remain in place until July 2016. About ARTsites: ARTsites 2015 is a year-long outdoor public art exhibit that will take place at 12 sites throughout Howard County. The goal of ARTsites is to place sculpture throughout Howard County in order to engage the community and enhance public spaces. The sculptures will create visual anchor points and increase community access to the arts. The multi-site exhibit will also serve as a visual celebration of HCAC’s more than 30 year history of fostering the arts and bringing the arts to community life. ARTsites Panel: The ARTsites panel selected the host sites and narrowed down the artwork submissions to 30 finalists. The individual sites then selected the work to be installed at their location from among those finalists."
