ABOUT THE ARTS COUNCIL Daybreak is a unique community that embraces the values of community, family, healthy living, and a commitment to the arts and diversity. LiveDAYBREAK Community Council is a creation of the developer and has made a long-term commitment to public art in the Daybreak community. The Daybreak Arts Council is an initiative of the LiveDAYBREAK Community Council tasked with implementing its goals in installing public art pieces throughout the Daybreak community. The Daybreak Arts Council is a resident-led council. PROJECT DETAILS Daybreak has been designed to feature various villages, each one offering something unique for its residents. Garden Park is an easy-living village designed for people age 55+. This quiet neighborhood within Daybreak offers serene amenities and parks, and will soon feature a new contemplative garden. The Daybreak Arts Council intends to commission an original sculpture to install within the boundaries of the contemplative garden, which will be located at a green space within the Garden Park neighborhood. The residents of Garden Park village have requested that the sculpture commissioned by the Daybreak Arts Council be “gardenthemed”. The sculpture should be literal and traditional in style and design. See images on pages 5-6 for reference. The selected art will be installed Spring 2020, with more specific installation date information to come. The Daybreak Arts Council will coordinate the installation date with the artist following artwork selection. Installation of the sculpture, though not transportation to the installation site, will be covered by LiveDAYBREAK. Artists should indicate how each piece that is submitted may be installed (i.e. bolted, welded, etc.). For additional information that will be required with each submission, see page 3. PROJECT GOALS To permanently install a traditional, “garden-themed” sculpture within the Garden Park village in Daybreak To complete installation of this project no later than Spring 2020 To inspire and encourage Garden Park and Daybreak community members to explore and engage with their environment To help bolster support in the community for a comprehensive public art display program 2 BUDGET The budget for this project is $15,000. Artists should submit an itemized project budget for each design that is submitted that outlines information pertaining to artist fees, labor, materials, transportation costs, and other costs associated with the project. Installation of the sculpture (though not transportation to the installation site) will be covered by LiveDAYBREAK. The project payment schedule will be as follows: 40% paid at contract signing 40% paid at installation 20% paid at 8-week maintenance check ELIGIBILITY Artists or artist-led teams currently residing in the United States are eligible to apply for this project. EXPECTATION OF WORK A complete application must be submitted for each design (see page 3 for full details) and artists may submit multiple proposals. Artists may submit conceptual work for the purposes of this application, but upon notification of selection (see project schedule on page 3), artists should be able to fabricate the artwork in a timely manner so that installation deadlines may be met. Artists must submit a maintenance plan outlining any regular or intermittent maintenance that may be required for each piece that is submitted. The sculpture must be designed and fabricated to withstand the Utah climate. Artists should also consider aspects of public safety and structural integrity in the design, material usage, fabrication, and maintenance of the artwork. Preparation of the installation site will be completed by LiveDAYBREAK prior to art installation. Artists are responsible for safely transporting the artwork to the installation location within Daybreak and must remain on-site during the installation of the sculpture. After final payment has been made to the artist following the 8-week post-installation maintenance check, LiveDAYBREAK will assume maintenance responsibilities for the sculpture.
