COALVILLE, UTAH – The Summit County Public Art Advisory Board and the Summit County Fair Board have formed a joint collaboration to commission the design of a Centennial Mural to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Summit County Fair.
All Summit County artists are called to submit mural designs for the façade of the grandstand at the entrance to the Summit County Fairgrounds in Coalville. The commission is open to emerging and established artists residing in Summit County, ages 21 and over.
The design should be a public expression of the vitality and history of the Summit County Fair. A budget of $18,000 is available for all related expenses of this Public Art commission including (but not limited to) artist fees, graphic design fees, press checks, materials, travel, installation, documentation, artists’ materials, and removable mural surface.
A Pre-Proposal Conference will be held Thursday, June 4th from 4 to 5 pm in the conference room at The Canyons Fire Station, 1977 Canyons Resort Drive, in Park City. Members of the Joint Selection Committee of the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board and the Summit County Fair Board will discuss the specifications and objectives of this project with all interested artists.
Copies of the Request for Proposal will be available, or may be obtained at http://www.summitcounty.orgor by e-mailing Lola Beatlebrox, a member of the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Summit County Public Art Advisory Board was formed in July, 2008, by the County Commission to advise and oversee the installation of public art in county buildings and unincorporated areas of the county.
“The mission of the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board is to celebrate and unite Summit County residents through public art,” said Lola Beatlebrox, who is coordinating the joint collaboration. For more information call Lola Beatlebrox at (435) 640-0682.
