With all of the talented artists we have here in our valley it should come as no surprise that, collectiviely, their art work can be seen from Wasatch County to all across the globe. This spring and summer there is an opportunity for our amazing artists to share their gift(s) with Summit County by creating a Historical Mural in Hoytsville, Utah.
“The SCPAAB is seeking qualified artists to create a two-dimensional mural celebrating and honoring the history, heritage, and culture of Hoytsville and Summit County. The mural will be installed on the exterior of the Public Works Building in Hoytsville and should be approximately 121’X11’, with some flexibility based on design concept and development. There are plans to also include a “listening tour” with interviews from Hoytsville residents, local historians, and Indigenous Tribal members.”
The project will have a budget of $10,000; deadline for RFQ submissions is February 20, 2022 by 5:00 pm (MST). To learn more please visit: www.summitcounty.org
