Six public art sculptures will compete for the People’s Choice Award in Coalville when online and paper ballot voting is conducted through April 15.

The City has pledged up to $3,500 to purchase one of the sculptures, which have been displayed on Main Street as part of the Summit County Artscape public art gallery.

Residents can cast their vote by visiting .

Paper ballots are at Coalville City Hall and the County Courthouse in Coalville. There is one vote per person.

The artworks are as follows:

  • "Voyager" by Park City High School student Zane DeKoff is an airplane fashioned from metal.
  • "Balance" by Midway artist Keith Lundskog is constructed of a heavy stone balancing on a stressed and dented steel cone.
  • "Fawn" by Salt Lake artist Kristi Mercer is a 34-inch fawn made of hand wrought steel.
  • "Horse of Engine" by Albert Neeley is a horse whose legs are created from pistons and whose body includes the engine and timing belt.
  • "Flower" by Hooper artist Milt Neeley is an oversized metal sunflower.
  • "Guardians" by Dan Toone is a set of three rust patina steel columns with stainless steel wrap.

    Coalville artist Cody Keetch won the "People’s Choice Award" last year with "Metal Mulley," a sculpture made of lots of small individually hand hammered pieces of mild steel and welded together into the shape of a monster buck.
