Artists from Utah are encouraged to submit letters of interest and qualifications for the creation of public artwork for the new General Classroom Building at Utah Tech University. This project is also open to any professional artists or artist teams. Artists of historically underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged to apply.
Realizing Utah Tech’s polytechnic vision through a focus on the liberal arts, the 120,000-square foot, four-story classroom building will serve as the southeast anchor for the campus. Along with other General Education classes, the building will house all five departments of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences: Applied Sociology and Criminal Justice; Communication; English; History, Humanities, and Modern Languages; and Psychology.
The Art Selection Committee has identified several potential locations suitable for an artist’s interpretation, but will remain open to other areas as envisioned by the finalist artists. Artists should carefully review the building site plans and renderings and consider the unique possibilities afforded by the building’s design.
The all-inclusive project budget is $166,000. The full description and how to apply is available at arts.utah.gov/public-art-opportunities. The deadline for receipt of material from interested artists is 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time on June 5, 2023. Applications may be submitted online at https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=11782
