Annual Programs

9/5: Call for Entry: Creating Connections
Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with the CyberWire, is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists. As an extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT Project, MAP is working with CyberWire to offer a unique opportunity to female and female-identifying visual artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and the CyberWire wish to acquire and possibly commission, time permitting, plus license the image of a work of art.
