Letters of interest and qualifications are requested from artists interested in creating art for the public area(s) of the new Department of Environmental Quality Technical Support Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Budget: $40,500 – Deadline: June 30, 2017Resident US citizen and legal resident artists are eligible for this commission. Utah artists are encouraged to apply.

The Selection Committee will collaborate with an artist to develop an installation that reflects the important role the Department of Environmental Quality has in safeguarding Utah’s air, land and water. For context, the artist may consider that the Support Center is designed to help the Department ensure that data collected is accurate, the science is reliable, and decisions are made based on the best available information. The Department also engages numerous stakeholders to participate in the dialogue about environmental protection. The Committee encourages the artist to consider all of this, as does DEQ, in the spirit of service, protection, collaboration and trust.
