First Public Arts Installation Selected

Broad-ReachThe Chestertown Public Arts Master Plan, made possible by an NEA “Our Town” grant, secured by RiverArts and the Town of Chestertown, has achieved its first step with a jury-selected sculpture design by esteemed Baltimore artist David Hess. The sculpture, a playscape destined for Wilmer Park, will be created out of premium grade, smooth edged stainless steel, and shaped like waves and sails to convey the spirit of a waterfront community. Read the full story in the Chestertown Spy.

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.
