The Public Art Across Maryland program supports communities planning and creating public art. The program supports community visioning activities and planning processes to develop a public art concept idea, as well as funds to create and produce the final public artwork. The resulting work may be in any media, temporary or permanent, and inside or outside. The artwork must be free and publicly accessible to all.

Maryland non-profit organizations and/or local government may apply for either Planning Grant of up to $2500, or an Implementation Grant of up to $10,000 for a public art project that is developed through a community-driven engagement process.
