SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Public Art Program of the Division of Arts & Museums, in association with the Division of Facilities and Construction Management and Salt Lake Community College, has published a call for letters of interest and qualifications from resident Utah artists interested in creating art for the Bruin Fitness Center at the South City Campus of Salt Lake Community College. The Art Selection Committee is hopeful the artist for this commission will consider and reflect the users of the SLCC campus, the facility and the surrounding South Salt Lake City community.
The deadline for receipt of material from interested artists is 5 p.m. MST, Aug. 14, 2015. The full description and guidelines for application can be found at publicart.utah.gov. Artists may submit qualifications online at callforentry.org
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 percent 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, over 220 works have been placed in State facilities statewide.
