"It could end up being a real showpiece for the conference center."
Artist qualifications will be evaluated on creativity, knowledge of materials and a demonstrated ability to construct a major art piece.
Submittals can be in hard copy or electronic format and should include examples of the artist's work, particularly any extremely large pieces.
Those who qualify will be asked to submit a proposal for the piece that could be either two or three dimensional, single or multimedia.
The total budget for the art piece will be $50,000, and the final work must be completed and installed by Sept. 1 so it can be unveiled at the Davis County fund-raising gala this fall. Artists who are deemed qualified will be expected to attend an organized site visit prior to submitting a proposal.
Qualification submissions should be sent to Davis County C.E.D., 28 E. State Street in Farmington or e-mailed to Burton at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please contact Burton at 451-3279.
