Brief Description

Livestock agriculture, especially poultry farming, has a long-history on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and has provided economic support to local residents over generations. The commissioned artwork should respect the dignity and history of the local farmer, as well as the work the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Animal Health Program performs on behalf of the public.
The Animal Health Laboratory hopes that the selected artist will take advantage of the visibility of the location to create an artwork that can become a memorable and positive landmark and something that can communicate to all who enter, or pass by, the importance of animal health to this important aspect of the Eastern Shore’s economy and culture.
