The latest call for artists in Baltimore came from perhaps an unlikely source.

Downtown-based cybersecurity firm CyberPoint is looking to commission a new work from a Baltimore-based female artist around the theme of “creating connections.” While that could inspire visions of people-centered connections or internet connections, CyberPoint Creative Director Peter Kilpe said there isn’t a particular set of criteria the company is expecting.

“We’re interested to hear the artists’ perspective on the theme,” he said.

CyberPoint is working with Maryland Art Place, whose headquarters is also located downtown, to put out the call to the art community and ultimately select the winning work.

The commission, which totals $750 for the original work and license, is designed to foster a connection in itself. The work will be unveiled at the company’s Women in Cybersecurity reception on Nov. 19. It’s an invite-only event that’s designed to connect women who work in the field. At last year’s event, the original work of winner Claire Girodie was on display and each attendee received a signed, limited edition print.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to support emerging artists,” Kilpe said.

The deadline for artists is Saturday, Aug. 1.
