Frederick Arts Council Purchases Historic Church to Serve as Center for Public Art

The Frederick Arts Council announces its purchase of the historic property located at 5 E 2nd Street. The building formerly served as a church and was built in 1871.
The Arts Council’s intent for the property is to use it primarily as a home base for the County’s Public Art Program, as outlined in “Connections,” Frederick’s Public Art Master Plan.
The converted church and community arts center will house public art projects, an office for the Arts Council’s Public Art Program
The public art program of the Frederick Arts Council is supported by the Ausherman Family Foundation which awarded the organization with a three-year Focus grant.
Portions of the funding for the church purchase has been generously provided by the Nora Roberts Foundation and Marketing & Research Resources (M&RR). FAC is also seeking donations from the public in order to renovate the space. Individual supporters who donate in increments of $50, $100, $500, and $1000 will be named on a special banner to be displayed within the arts center.
Following renovations, FAC plans to begin programming at the arts center by a tentative date of April 2020. Community members interested in making a donation should contact info@frederickartscouncil.org.
