Public Art
The City Council has established funds for public art, which are administered through the City’s Arts Committee. Public art is defined as artwork that is visible to the general public and enhances and enriches the community. There are two policies governing public art in Bowie: Art in Public Places Policy and the Acquisition Policy

The City Council approved a revised Public Art Master Plan in January 2015 that lists future public art proposals. The City has seven public art pieces: Lost Blues Brother Bird; Ham's Shadow; Bowie Portal Sundial; Triple Crown mobile; Boathouse mural; Great Water wall sculpture; and Drum Circle, a musical playground piece.


The City of Bowie announces a Request for Proposals public art opportunity for qualified artists or artist teams to design, fabricate and install artwork for an outside sculpture to be installed at the City's Centennial Park. The park is located just south of Bowie City Hall and the side parking lot.

Deadline for submissions is September 1, 2016.
