Coalville announces a call for entries

Submitted by the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board

Summit County and the City of Coalville is announcing a Call for Entries for the 2013 to 2014 show in the outdoor public art sculpture gallery "Summit County Artscape." This public art project seeks a variety of artwork introducing viewers to artistic approaches from all over the country. Coalville is located near Park City, and entertains thousands visitors at the Summit County Fair and Rodeo every year.

The Summit County Artscape exhibit is open to all artists who wish to be considered to show their work on Main Street, Coalville, from May 13, through April 30. 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.

One goal of Artscape is to add at least one piece to the exhibiting municipality’s permanent collection each year. The City of Coalville will purchase one piece of sculpture (up to $3,500) out of all the accepted entries displayed in Coalville for this year’s exhibit period. The winner of the People’s Choice Award is chosen through voting held online and with paper ballots. Voting for last year’s show will be held from April 1 through April 30.

The deadline for this year’s Artscape submissions is Tuesday, April 30.

The Summit County Board of Commissioners created the Summit County Public Art Program and Advisory Board in April 2008. The volunteer advisory board facilitates the Artscape submissions and installation process. The mission of the Board is to celebrate and unite Summit County residents through art.

For more information and for an application form, visit or call Lola Beatlebrox, Artscape Chair, Summit County Public Art Advisory Board at (435) 640-0682.
