Lake Roland Public Art Project
COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 8,800 Marylanders,
including more than 1,500 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, the Baltimore County Arts Guild and Baltimore County, Maryland are partnering to seek 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.
