City officials seek art for Utah’s busiest airport

March 30, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City officials are putting out the call for artists as work continues on a massive redevelopment project at Utah’s busiest airport.

The city is modernizing the international airport, and plans calls for an installation that will span 30 feet (9 meters) near the security screening area. Officials say more than 25 million passengers pass through the area every year, and they will see the new “SLC Art Wall.”

Officials want the artwork to speak to the spirit and people of Utah.

Artists have until April 17 to express interest and outline their qualifications. The Salt Lake Art Design Board and airport representatives will choose three finalists who will then propose concepts for the space.

The first phase of the redevelopment project is scheduled to open in 2020.
