The Redevelopment Agency (RDA) of Salt Lake City and Salt Lake City Corporation (City) announce a request for qualifications (RFQ) for a public art opportunity located on Regent Street, in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. This project is managed by the City’s Public Art Program.
A new state-of-the-art performing arts center, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater, opened on Regent Street in October 2016. The theater has become the region’s premier entertainment venue and a contemporary landmark for Utah’s capital city. The construction of the theater 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. The crowning piece of Regent’s redevelopment is a public art installation that will formalize the street as the core of a thriving arts and cultural district.
