'Art's a Ball!' project now under way

May 01, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. - The Frederick Arts Council, in collaboration with the Frederick Keys, will sponsor a public art project, "Art's a Ball!", featuring 1,000 baseballs that will be on display throughout the community.

The baseballs are available for decorating by interested artists. Each registered artist will receive a leather baseball. The artist must incorporate this baseball into their artistic creation. Artists will have the option of attaching accessories or adding to the ball to complete their work, however the submission must remain as one piece.

To register and receive a ball, call 301-662-4190. The completed piece must be returned to the Frederick Arts Council by Sunday, June 15. Selected baseballs will be displayed at various locations in Frederick County from Tuesday, July 1, to Friday, Aug. 15.

"Art's a Ball!" will culminate at the second annual Art in the Park night, Friday, Aug. 29, at Harry Grove Stadium. Baseballs will be auctioned, sold or put on permanent public display in the community. Proceeds from the auction and sale will benefit the arts in Frederick County.
