The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to announce an opportunity for Utah artists or artist-led teams to submit qualifications for the re-envisioned 9th South Roundabout Call for Artists. The re-envisioned 9th South Roundabout Call for Artists strives to commission artwork in the new roundabout near 9th and 9th that responds to the dynamism and sense of transformation in the area. Originally released in December 2019, this public art oportunity has been retooled to consider blending permanent sculptural artwork with a rotating program of temporary murals. The resulting artwork has the option to be part permanent and part changeable, allowing for new artists to interpret and modify the sculpture’s surfaces over time. This particular Call for Artists is exclusively commissioning permanent sculptural elements for the roundabout; finalists will be encouraged but not required to include up to 150 square feet of mural surfaces in their design. If murals are included in the final design, they will be commissioned in a separate process.
ELIGIBILITY – This Request for Qualifications is open to all professional artists and/or artist-led teams residing in Utah.
