The Public Art Program was created by the Utah State Legislature in 1985 as part of the Percent-for-Art-Act, which provides one percent of the cost of building projects to ‘New or renovated condition on commission or acquisition of works of art.

Artists from Utah or other Western states are encouraged to submit letters of interest, along with their qualifications, for the creation of their public works of art.

The DABC Art Selection Committee will seek out works of art that draw or draw inspiration from the community and Salt Lake City context. The artwork can include “the services offered by DABC, the architecture and / or the beautiful landscape of Utah for example,” according to a press release.

The committee is primarily interested in interior wall work, but may consider other supports.

The deadline for submitting material for the project is 11:59 p.m. MST on February 18, 2022.

Applications can be submitted here.
