The Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) has selected the 13 sites and sculptures for ARTsites 2015, its fourth annual public art initiative. The sculptures have been installed during the past month and will remain in place until July 2016.

About ARTsites

ARTsites 2015 is a year-long outdoor public art exhibit taking place at 12 sites throughout Howard County. The goal of ARTsites is to place sculpture throughout Howard County in order to engage the community and enhance public spaces. The sculptures will create visual anchor points and increase community access to the arts.

ARTsites Panel

The ARTsites panel selected the host sites and narrowed down the artwork submissions to 30 finalists. The individual sites then selected the work to be installed at their location from among those finalists. The panel consisted of Randy Clay, Howard County Planning & Zoning; Julie Hughes-Jenkins, Corporate Office Properties Trust; Ryan Patterson, Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts; Mary Kay Sigaty, Howard County Council; and Coleen West, HCAC.
