Maryland Art Place (MAP,) in partnership with Quinn Evans, is excited to announce an open call for EXCHANGE. We are seeking artworks centric to energy in relation to the built environment.

About the NOMA Conference: The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) proudly presents the annual NOMA Conference and Exposition, The EXCHANGE, in Baltimore from October 23–27, 2024. Join us and the more than 1,500 professional designers, students and partners from across the globe as we EXCHANGE through conversation, educational seminars, community exploration, and networking events to share perspectives that influence the future of the built environment. We are excited to host Conference 2024 in Baltimore, a vibrant and diverse historic community located along the Chesapeake Bay.

The conference theme, The EXCHANGE, conveys the sharing of ideas, partnerships and collaborations; how our communities grow in knowledge, spirit and connection through each EXCHANGE. Our daily EXCHANGES, both big, like attending NOMA Conference, or small, like coffee with a colleague, have the power to ignite positive change and fuel our future advancements. We must be active participants in the EXCHANGE; it is these acts that facilitate a better tomorrow. Let us come together in Baltimore, in partnership with the Bmore NOMA chapter, to uphold our mission, celebrate our members and EXCHANGE in conversations to advocate for the underrepresented and create lasting change.
