Public Art RFP Artwork for Ledges Event Center
U.S. National Deadline: February 28, 2020 – The Summit County Public Art Board (SCPAAB) is seeking artists to propose a concept for highly creative three-dimensional artwork to be installed on the east exterior of the Ledges Event Center at the Summit County Fairgrounds.
Artists and/or artist teams with public art experience and residence in the United States are eligible to apply and may submit concepts for the Ledges Event Center Exterior Artwork. Submission of digital materials is required. Please review all guidelines in this Call to Artists and resources provided before starting an application. Incomplete responses will not be considered.
The Ledges Event Center, located at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Coalville UT, is an open-layout, 11,600 square-foot community building with ample natural light and multiple event spaces to accommodate almost any type of event or gathering.
Ledges is the first non-State of Utah building to adopt the High Performance Building Standards developed by the State of Utah Department of Facilities Construction and Management. Careful consideration went into the design and construction of the building regarding energy efficiency and sustainable practices.
The Ledges Event Center was the result of several years of work from the County in planning improvements to the County Fair. Summit County has featured an organized, annual County Fair since 1909. Since the late 1940’s, the Fair has been held in Coalville, Utah and has become a signature County event that not only provides an opportunity to showcase the livestock and farming traditions, but an occasion for residents and visitors to come together as an extended community.
The SCPAAB seeks artwork for the east exterior of the building that reflects the culture, history, and strong community of the City of Coalville and Summit County, UT. Artwork submissions should engage the viewer well beyond the project’s installation. Project proposals may include any form of three dimensional artwork. Preference may be given to artists who use sustainable practices in their work.
Any artist or team of artists interested in creating a three dimensional art installation driven by the project goals, to be completed in summer 2020, may complete a proposal in accordance with the guidelines provided below. Additional consideration may be given to submissions with stated relevance and ties to Summit County, UT. SCPAAB members, employees of Summit County, selection panel members, project personnel, and immediate family members of all of the above are not eligible to apply.
