Charles County Government is issuing a call for artists from the State of Maryland to apply to create a vibrant and welcoming outdoor place at Elite Gymnastics and Recreation Center (2745 Old Washington Road, Waldorf). This site is the first public art project in Waldorf.
The public art submission theme is recreation with an overall vision of the Waldorf Urban Redevelopment Corridor. The project should incorporate two- to three-dimensional sculpture, seating, walkways, and landscape design features.
