Authorized by the General Assembly in 2005, the Maryland Commission on Public Art was appointed in 2007 (Chapter 393, Acts of 2005). In March 2008, the Commission had its inaugural meeting.

The Commission administers the Capital Projects - Inclusion of Public Art program revised by legislation in 2019, which was established to commission art for installation in new or renovated state buildings eligible for public art. Artwork integrated in the state capital construction project becomes the property of the state agency occupying the building.

Eleven members constitute the Commission. Seven of these are appointed by the Secretary of Commerce with the Governor's approval. Four members serve ex officio. The Chair is designated by the Secretary of Commerce with the Governor's approval (Code Economic Development Article, secs. 4-601 through 4-608).
