The deadline for submissions to the coming year's Artscape People's Choice Award contest is Monday, May 5.

The Summit County Artscape exhibit is open to all artists who wish to be considered to show their work on Main Street in Coalville from May 12, 2014-April 30, 2015. Up to eight outdoor sculptures will be selected.

New and existing works are eligible. Pieces must be ready to install and sustainable outdoors without maintenance for one year. Transportation is the responsibility of the artist. Works that exhibit a Summit County "sense of place" are encouraged, but not required.

Next year the City of Coalville will purchase one piece of sculpture (up to $1,500) out of all the accepted entries displayed in Coalville for this year's exhibit period.

The Summit County Board of Commissioners created the Summit County Public Art Program and Advisory Board in April, 2008. The volunteer board, comprised of nine Summit County residents, makes recommendations to the county council and county manager regarding public art and funding opportunities. The mission of the board is to celebrate and unite Summit County residents through art. Summit County residents interested in serving on the board should contact the county manager's office.
