The removal of Baltimore’s Confederate monuments has captured the attention of the public and inspired artists and others to propose ideas for what might happen next at the four sites left behind.
In response, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts has created an online portal, “Monumental Sites,” to serve as a central repository for the public’s suggestions and ideas.
Please use this online application as a portal to submit your ideas and creative responses to addressing the former sites of the monuments and the remaining bases.CRITERIA:
Context: Creative Ideas and Responses may take into account the past, present, and future events of the monument locations, and the presence and narrative of the monument's relationship to the City.While the submission process in no way guarantees that any of the proposals will be implemented, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is committed to archiving all submissions and may choose to display proposals either online or through a physical exhibition.
Implementation: How easy is it to put your idea in place?
Time: How long will your artwork or idea be on the site? What is the length of the performance?
Budget: What is the estimated cost to put your idea in place?.
