Do you know Hagerstown, Maryland, and its people? Can you capture the truth of life in Hagerstown in a photo? Then this opportunity is for you!
The City of Hagerstown, in partnership with the Washington County Arts Council and the Visit Hagerstown-Washington County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition of Faces of Hagerstown (FOH), a signature public art feature of the new Hagerstown Cultural Trail.
Faces of Hagerstown is a large-scale outdoor photo mural gallery focusing on the human face and the truth of the Hagerstown experience. It will be located along the Hagerstown Cultural Trail in two prominent locations: (1) on a layered chain link mesh screening at the West Antietam Street Entrance Plaza (artist rendering above), and (2) on a restored artistic masonry wall and custom decorative pole covers along the Lee Street segment of the Trail (depicted below).
Approximately thirty-five photographs will be selected for large-scale reproduction in high-resolution black-and-white at a size of 36” x 36” (nine square feet). They will be printed on waterproof display panels and exhibited in the two locations for three years. A number of smaller images may also be installed on three decorative columns (pole covers) along Lee Street.
Faces of Hagerstown celebrates people of all ages and backgrounds who work or live or go to school in the City of Hagerstown, Maryland, by showcasing candid artistic images of them engaged in everyday life. To be eligible, images must be captured between January 11, 2017 and April 1, 2017.
Deadline to apply is April 1, 2017.
