Funds awarded for art bike racks in Crisfield
The Maryland State Arts Council has awarded the Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District Project $20,000 through the Public Art Across Maryland (PAAM) grant. This project will provide six art bike racks throughout the Crisfield area. The designs to be implemented were identified through a 2020 PAAM design grant and can be viewed at CrisfieldArts.org.
