Municipal Art Society Artist Travel Prize

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) is proud to announce the first edition of the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City Artist Travel Prize, sponsored by the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City (MASOB). The prize awards $6,000 to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in Baltimore City. The prize is intended to provide funding for travel essential to an artist’s studio practice that the artist may not otherwise be able to afford. Proposals should clearly articulate the artist’s reason for travel and how it relates to their work, along with supporting materials. The winning proposal will be selected by a jury consisting of Municipal Art Society board members. Click here to apply.  The deadline for submissions is Thursday, June 30, 2016.

 MASOB was founded in 1899 and is one of only two remaining societies to be operating under its original charter “to provide sculptural and pictorial decoration and ornaments for the public buildings, streets and open spaces in the City of Baltimore, and to help generally beautify the City.” In 2016, MASOB embarks on a path to provide new opportunities to Baltimore artists and art places within the City.

The Baltimore Office of Promotion &The Arts is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization which serves as Baltimore City’s arts council, film office, and events agency. By producing large-scale events such as Light City, Artscape and the Baltimore Book Festival, and providing funding and support to artists, arts programs and organizations across the city, BOPA’s goal is to make Baltimore a more vibrant and creative city.
