Maryland Art Place Archives

The Maryland Art Place Archives collection includes materials that document the foundation and early years of the organization.

In 1981, a group of artists and committed citizens began exploring the subject of the visual arts in Maryland, focusing on two primary concerns: the common needs of visual artists throughout the state, and the desire of many citizens to have more access to and information about artists working in Maryland. The Maryland State Arts Council recognized the inherent value of these concerns and the importance of a venue to facilitate the communities' needs. As a result of their awareness, the Arts Council granted funds to form an organization that would further this group's pursuits in promoting contemporary art. This dedicated group, became the founders of Maryland Art Place (MAP), leading the organization to incorporation in 1982.
