  • Brief Description

    Towson University (TU), in partnership with the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC), seeks to commission artists or teams to create permanent public artwork for the new College of Health Professions (CHP) building. Two artwork commission opportunities are offered:

    Two-dimensional, or low relief artwork for the interior; and Three-dimensional, sculptural, or landscape based artwork Artists and teams with the appropriate qualifications and experience may apply to both locations, but are required to submit two separate applications. The commissioned artworks should serve as welcoming and attractive additions to the Towson University campus, helping to draw attention to the important collaborative work happening within the College of Health Professions. In addition, the artwork must:

    • Be original, unique, and appropriate for the location.
    • Relate to the artwork goals set by the College of Health Professions and Towson University.
    • Be highly durable, structurally sustainable, theft and damage resistant. (The interior artwork, in particular, must be easily able to be cleaned. Dust resistant/easily wipeable surfaces are highly encouraged)

    Artists selected to receive a commission contract will be expected to review their artwork concepts with the project team, including MSAC, University of Maryland, Baltimore, and Towson University to ensure that the artwork is appropriately designed and engineered through all stages of design, fabrication, and installation. Final acceptance is subject to approval by Towson University, which will become the owner of the artwork. Please see commission link document for full application instructions and application forms.
