The Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council (PGAHC) and the Prince George’s County Department of Environmental Resources (DER) released today a request for qualifications (RFQs) for the County’s first Environmental Public Art Program (EPAP). The collaboration evolved from both agencies recognizing the need for increased community engagement around issues that enhance creative sustainable communities.  Each project will incorporate sustainable materials in conjunction with activities to promote environmental awareness.

“This is a phenomenal opportunity for addressing environmental issues through visual art that inspires both artists and citizens to embrace environmental sensitivities in both creative practice and lifestyle,” says Rhonda Dallas, Executive Director of PGAHC.

The first installation will be placed in a prominent location at DER’s new headquarters in Largo. The project plans invite multiple sites in collaboration with cities, municipalities and community organizations throughout the County. The deadline for submitting RFQs is June 30, 2014 by 5 p.m.Download the RFQ
