The Baker Artist Awards are being announced and awarded tonight, March 25, live on Maryland Public Television, and through a live video feed on at 7:30 p.m.

The Awards consist of the Mary Sawyers Baker Prize, which will award three Baltimore area artists $25,000 each; and the Baltimore’s Choice Prize, voted on by the public, which will give seven artists $1,000 each.

The Baker Artist Awards is the first public art competition of its kind to incorporate public voting through an online forum. Over 600 Baltimore area artists were nominated, and more than 35,000 people from all 50 states and over 118 countries visited the website between November, 2008 and February, 2009, when voting closed.
