The Frederick community is invited to a Public Art Design Workshop to learn about and provide feedback on plans for a new sculptural landmark for North Market Street.

FREDERICK, Md. , Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — A Public Art Design Workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 9 from 7pm-8:30pm 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 a vital component of the public art project,” states Kara Norman, Executive Director of Downtown Frederick Partnership. “We’re excited to begin the process.”
The workshop is being 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 artist selection for a prominent new contemporary sculpture for the 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 the new contemporary public artwork will be twin focal points for the new park.
