Dorchester Street Public Art Panels Project

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

The largest panel, 12 feet by 8 feet, features all things Ocean City. The smaller panels complete the public art project.

Have you been downtown to Dorchester Street recently? If the answer is no, then you will want to make sure you get there soon. The newest Downtown Public Artwork Installation is now complete! The Dorchester Street Public Art Panels are on display and feature a taste of both Ocean City and Maryland.

The state abbreviation for Maryland stands proudly and is on display on Dorchester Street in Ocean City.

The highly detailed, bright panels were all painted by local artist Ali Jacobs of TC Studios, and are ready for their public closeup courtesy of the Ocean City Development Corporation (OCDC) and its Public Art Committee. The Committee commissioned
TC Studios to paint the panels for this Dorchester Street north side wall, which is owned by Jerry Greenspan. Mr. Greenspan completely renovated and had the wall repainted in preparation for this specific project. Signs Illustrated prepared and cut the panels in anticipation of their installation.  The original artworks were ultimately installed by Mitrecic Builders.
