City Hall is seeking one or two artists to create paintings depicting two recently honored historic buildings.

One of the buildings is a house at 929 Park Ave. and the other is the Talisker on Main restaurant building at 515 Main St. The two were selected for the Historic Preservation Award for projects completed in 2013 or earlier.

The Historic Preservation Board, City Hall's Old Town panel, chose the two winning buildings.

Anya Grahn, the preservation planner at City Hall, said up to $1,500 is available for the two artworks. The request for proposals seeking artists indicates the municipal government will pay up to $750 per piece or $1,500 for one piece. If an artist proposes a single piece, both buildings must be depicted, Grahn said.

Proposals from artists are due by June 6. A selection committee will choose the finalists. An awards committee consisting of three Historic Preservation Board members and Planning Department staffers will pick the artist or artists, according to the request for proposals.

The artwork or artworks will be put on display at the Marsac Building. Paintings of the two previous winners -- High West Distillery & Saloon and the Washington School House Hotel -- hang inside the building.

More information about the artist search, including the request for proposals, is available on City Hall's website, www.parkcity.org.
