The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to announce an opportunity for artists and artist-led teams to submit qualifications for the Jordan River Boat Ramp Request for Qualifications.
Utah’s Jordan River is a unique environmental and recreational amenity enjoyed by pedestrians, cyclists, and paddlers. In an effort to provide expanded infrastructure to support recreational users on the Jordan River, the Jordan River Water Trail project is creating four formal boat access points along Salt Lake City’s meandering, tree-lined section of the Jordan River. All four ramps will be open for use by the summer of 2021.
The Jordan River Boat Ramp project provides the unique opportunity for the creation of artwork at four distinct sites in Salt Lake City, each linked by the river trail and parkway. The Salt Lake City Art Design Board is pleased to pursue artwork which can respond to the natural environment of the river along with its recreational uses, visually link the four sites, and engage with the sites at the neighborhood level while celebrating the River’s essential significance to the Salt Lake region.
ELIGIBILITY: All professional artists and/or artist-led teams residing in the Western Region, defined as Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, and Wyoming.
PROJECT BUDGET: $144,000
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, February 19, 2021 at 5:00 PM MDT
