Beautiful New Landmark Sculpture Coming to Essex
In March, the Eastern Baltimore County Task Force invited community and business leaders, artists and representatives from Baltimore County's Department of Planning to participate in an Essex Landmark Sculpture Work Group. After a group discussion, which included the results of the 2018 Essex Day survey, the decision was made to retire the Cube and donate it to the Heritage Society of Essex & Middle River for display in the museum.
The new sculpture will have four illuminated sides reflecting waterfront life and the past, present and future of Essex. Below is a sample to give you an idea of what this sculpture might look like. The Work Group has just released a Call for Artists, with an honorarium of $1,200 to be awarded across winning selections. All participants will be honored in a curated show installed at the Heritage Society.
The Chamber would like to thank the following individuals for serving on the Work Group: Deirdre Aikin - Chair/Program Manager, Leah Biddinger, Lisa Harlow, Laurie Hay, Jessie Hillman, Sharon Kihn, Marta Kulchytska, George Lang, Cliff O'Connell, Bob Romadka, and Sam Weaver. We also wish to thank Maryland sculptor and fabricator Tim Scofield for lending his talents to the project.
