A new state-of-the-art performing arts center, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater, will open in downtown Salt Lake City in the fall of 2016. The theater will become the region’s premier entertainment venue and a contemporary landmark for Utah’s capitol city. The construction of the theater has generated an exciting development opportunity to redesign and revitalize the adjacent street, Regent Street, which is one of downtown Salt Lake City’s most interesting streets – both historically and culturally.
ELIGIBILITY – The Call for Artists is open to all professional artists and/or artist-led teams, based in Utah, nationally and/or internationally.
PROJECT BUDGET – The commission budget is $1,400,000 to $2,000,000 USD. To be awarded as one commission. Budget is inclusive of all artist’s fees, travel, design, engineering, insurance, permits, fabrication, labor, shipping and installation.
The Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City has identified up to $700,000.00 for basic technology infrastructure improvements on Regent Street. This technology infrastructure may be utilized by the artists as a part of the public art commission as specified in the Call for Artists (see Artwork Criteria and Review and Selection Process). Eligible projects for technology infrastructure improvements may include artwork that incorporates multimedia elements, e.g. light, digital, and/or sound.
SUBMISSION INFORMATION – The Salt Lake City public art program uses the CaFÉ digital application and selection process. Full application information can be found at www.callforentry.org.
