Chestertown Public Arts Master Plan Complete
The Chestertown Public Arts Master Plan was made possible by an NEA “Our Town” grant, sponsored by RiverArts and the Town of Chestertown. The intent: to codify a vision for celebrating the artistic, historical, and environmental assets unique to Chestertown, to revitalize the waterfront area, engage audiences, and create unique, memorable, and life-affirming experiences for residents and visitors alike.
The plan is the first public arts master plan in the region and will be a model for small towns on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and beyond.
This Public Arts Master Plan is the result of a year-long process involving a
series of public charrettes and meetings with stakeholders and community
members to identify types of and locations for public art projects, as well as a
process for incorporating public art into the planning and funding mechanisms
of the Town. View the plan here.
RiverArts Mission: To engage our community in the creation, appreciation, and support of the arts through education, events, and exhibitions.
RiverArts Vision: To inspire and foster creativity as a positive and sustainable force that enriches our community and establishes the region as a premier arts destination.
