Public Art Specialist
For the past six years, Kim Domanski has specialized in developing temporary and permanent public art projects for the City of Baltimore. In addition to managing a modernization of the City’s Percent-for-Public Art Ordinance that was passed in the first half of her tenure and establishing the City’s first Public Art Commission, she has authored Baltimore’s policy on accepting gifts of public art. The establishment of this legislation and development of these policies has allowed Domanski to coordinate the approval, planning and installation of sculptures honoring Maryland Governor William Donald Schaefer, music legend and Baltimore native Frank Zappa, and Baseball Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson; in addition, more than a dozen new Percent-for-Public Art projects are in various stages of development for Baltimore. Domanski has also initiated and organized several temporary sculpture installations throughout the City.
Along with her public art responsibilities, Domanski is the administrator for the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize, a $25,000 visual artist prize given annually to a Baltimore/Washington DC area artist. This prize includes exhibitions of the Finalists’ artwork at the Baltimore Museum of Art and of the Semi-Finalists’ artwork in the Decker & Meyerhoff Galleries at the Maryland Institute College of Art. The Semi-Finalist Exhibition is also curated by Ms. Domanski.
Ms. Domanski received her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and received her BA from Bucknell University, where she graduated with honors in Studio Art.
