What's Going On?

The M-NCPPC/Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation/Arts and Cultural Heritage Division, Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council, and University of Maryland University College Arts Program invite artists and other art professionals to a two-day symposium entitled, 'Demystifying Public Art'!


Public art—art outside traditional galleries or museums—is present everywhere, but many artists have limited knowledge of the various factors involved in participating in public art projects. The goal of this symposium is to demystify the process by bringing together people active in the public art field to address these factors.


This two-day event will take place on February 16th and 17th and feature a full schedule of of events. The first day provides an introduction to public art through panel discussions geared to all levels of artistic experience. The second day offers a deeper dive into specific components of public art projects. Special closing events will take place on both days. This symposium will give attendees the opportunity to network and connect with presenters and each other. Click here to view the full schedule!
