Presenting to the Baltimore City Public Art Commission (PAC) Steps

Presenting to the Baltimore City Public Art Commission (PAC)  

  1. Get a project (rather new commission artwork, move, conservation or deaccession) 
  2. Send an email to the PAC Administrator (currently Kirk Shannon-Butts) regarding the project 
  3. The project is reviewed by the PAC Administrator to determine if the artwork is in the Baltimore City Public Art collection and meets 1% for Art ordinance guidelines – as many public facing artworks across the city are owned by federal, state, private, university, and colleges entities and thusly are not within the Baltimore City 1% For Art ordinance domain and stewardship. 
  4. Upon guidelines completion the Project Manager and PAC Administrator will meet to discuss the project, eligibility, scope, and goals. 
  5. Thereafter, the project will be placed on an upcoming PAC agenda for review, discussion, Q & A, and vote after a presentation of the project to the PAC

 

Meetings of the PAC are open to the public to observe. For more information on the Public Art Commission, or to request an agenda item on an upcoming PAC meeting agenda, please contact Kirk Shannon-Butts, BOPA’s Public Art and Curation Manager, at PACadmin@promotionandarts.org.
