Lake Roland Public Art Project
COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 9,500 Marylanders, including more
than 1,600 Baltimore County residents, since Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski declared a local state of emergency on March 13, 2020. To honor the
lives lost and all those affected by COVID-19, Baltimore County Government is seeking a highly creative and dynamic public art concept representing hope, unity, and healing. The free-standing public art will be installed at Lake Roland Park, near walking and biking paths, and among acres of open space. The goal of this initiative is a finished public art project that will exist as a commemorative piece to honor the memory of those affected by this global pandemic, provide a place for remembrance and reconciliation, and create a meditative space.
