Community Art Projects Application

Is there a City-owned location in your neighborhood that would benefit from a community art project? The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to encourage art proejcts in all seven City Council Districts on City-owned property or int he right-of-way. This might include utility boxes, street/sidealk paintings, artistic banners, sculptural works, or murals. We inviste artists, schools, neighborhood groups, or organizations to submit a proposal to place art on City property that would enhance the quality of the community.

Salt Lake City receives requests regularly from citizen groups and non-profit organizations to place or paint art on City property. To assist and encourage these groups in their desire to add artistic elements to the urban landscape, guidelines have been developed and a review process implemented for these types of community-based projects. Some of the objectives of these guidelines are to:

            • Encourage projects that contribute to the quality of the public realm.

            • Encourage initiatives that come from, are supported by, and enhance the community.

            • Respect and support local artists.

            • Provide project opportunities to all districts and neighborhoods.

THIS IS NOT AN APPLICATION FOR CITY FUNDING. The purpose of this application process is solely for the review/approval of requests from artists and community groups to do art projects on Salt Lake City property at their own expense.

Click for the application. The deadline for submission is Monday, August 25, 2014 by 5:00 p.m. Applicants will be notified in September.
