FREDERIC, Md. , November 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — A Public Art Design Workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 9 of 7-8:30 p.m. at the Bernard Brown Community Center, 629 N Market St. This workshop is being held for the public to learn about and provide feedback on plans for a new sculptural landmark for North Market Street.
“Community input is an essential part of the public art project,” says Kara Norman, CEO of the Downtown Frederick Partnership. “We are excited to begin the process.”
The workshop is organized by Downtown Frederick Partnership and African American Resources Cultural Heritage Society of Frederick County (AARCH Society).
Public Art Consultants William and Teresa Cochran will describe little-known aspects of the site’s history and engage participants in a conversation to shape the design approach and selection of artists for a prominent new contemporary sculpture for Seventh Street Fountain Park.
The sculpture is envisioned as a statement piece to honor our shared humanity and Frederick’s collective commitment to building a more sustainable and inclusive community.
The newly redesigned and improved Seventh Street Fountain Park will begin construction in the summer of 2023. The restored 19th century cast iron fountain and new contemporary public artwork will be the two focal points of the new park.
