EUNIC and BOPA “Transit” Public Art Residency
The EUNIC cluster in Washington, DC and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts seek an accomplished artist to participate in “Getting to Know Europe: Transit” in Baltimore, Maryland from January 2014 to June 2014.
Baltimore shares some characteristics familiar in other post-industrial European cities: shrinking size and population, mixed ethnic population, social disintegration, an economic background of de-industrialization, efforts to reduce crime, and a vibrant cultural scene.
Baltimore City has 3 Arts & Entertainment (A&E) Districts within its metropolitan area: Highlandtown (East Baltimore), Station North (Midtown/North Baltimore), and Bromo Tower (Downton/West Baltimore). They form the local context for “Getting to Know Europe” in Baltimore.
