Two Public Art Opportunities Open in Ogden – 30 Jan 2014

Utah Arts & Museums is requesting qualifications and letters of interest for two new Utah Public Art Program opportunities.

The 2nd District Juvenile Court of Ogden is requesting qualifications and a letter of interest from artists interesting in creating public artwork for this new facility in Ogden. The court is motivated by a vision to mend, protect and strengthen families and the community and hopes the artist will use this motivation as inspiration for the project. Applications are being accepted online at www.callforentry.org or with the Utah Public Art office. The deadline is March 7, 2014.

Weber State University Tracy Hall Science Center is requesting qualifications and a letter of interest from artists interesting in working with the design team to create public art installation(s) that integrate art and science for this new science facility. Applications are being accepted online at www.callforentry.org or with the Utah Public Art office. The deadline is March 14, 2014.

The Public Art Program was created by the Utah State Legislature in 1985 with the passage of the Percent-for-Art-Act. This statute allows for 1% of construction costs for new or remodeled state facilities to be added to the project for the commissioning or acquisition of art that is site-specific to the facility and community. To date, more than 200 works have been placed in state facilities statewide. For more information, visit www.utahpublicart.org or contact Jim Glenn at jglenn@utah.gov or 801.245.7271.
