SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake City’s public art program is announcing the fourth round of Flying Objects, a temporary public art project in downtown Salt Lake City, funded by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City. Any artist residing in Utah is eligible to submit a proposal for this project. Each artist selected forFlying Objects 4.0 will receive a $5,000 honorarium for the loan of their artwork for the 2-year project period. The artworks will be returned to the artists at the end of the project.
The Salt Lake Art Design Board expects that the interpretation of Flying Objects will be as diverse as the artists who submit proposals for consideration. The Design Board will select the twelve sculptures from the artists’ submissions with the following project goals in mind:
To stage a series of sculptures to provide visual interest in downtown SLC;
To curate a group of sculptures in a range of styles and mediums;
To contribute a series of colorful and whimsical sculptures to the streetscape;
To provide an opportunity for artists to create public art on a temporary basis.
The public art program will be responsible for determining the placement and installation of the sculptures and will provide the steel post on which the sculptures will be mounted. The new sculptures will be installed in August 2014.
The submission deadline is Monday, January 13, 2014 by 5:00 p.m. Each artist will be required to submit a letter of interest, a model of the proposed sculpture, a current résumé, and images of past work.
