Artists needed for project in new UMES building


PRINCESS ANNE, Md. –  The University of Maryland Eastern Shore is Calling all artists  to bring their talents and vibrant, creative art to be housed in the new Pharmacy and Health Professions building.

The art is coming as part of the Maryland State Arts council public art initiative, and so artists interested in doing the work will need to apply through them, not through UMES.

Dr. Rondall Allen, the Dean of the School of Pharmacy and Health, says he’s hoping the art will encourage students and really resonate with them while they’re studying to be health care professionals.

“We’re hoping that they will be able to see a reflection of themselves, so I think walking into a building, seeing something that’s extremely creative, vibrant, that represents health professions, and what we do for this community,” Dr. Allen said.

The deadline for artists to apply is November 24. All application material can be found here.
