Now art should never try to be popular. The public should try to make itself artistic.
— OSCAR WILDE

OPEN CALLS

Deadline: August 31, 2017 The Bingham Junction project area consists of 390 acres on the west side of Midvale City. Formerly listed as a Superfund site by the Environmental Protection Agency, the area has experienced significant redevelopment since cleanup of the site in 2009. Current development in the area includes housing, retail, open space, and a corporate office park. The Agency has created the Bingham Junction Public Art Program to provide opportunities to integrate public art into private developments or public space within the project area. The Agency seeks proposals for a project that includes one aesthetically pleasing, imaginative, and iconic public art piece that will be a welcome feature and identification for the City’s newly improved, Bingham Junction Park. Total budget is $75K. More information here.
