Open Call for Art-
Ogden City is seeking submissions from artists of any kind to create or perform works of art within the new Nine Rails Creative District.
The Nine Rails Creative District in Ogden, Utah exists to support and encourage creatives, provide our community with new opportunities to engage with art in the public realm, and enhance the lives of our residents. We are also hoping to encourage creatives to live and work in the district. The Nine Rails Creative District Master Plan (officially adopted on August 14, 2018 by Ogden City Council) was set in place to guide future investment within the district in areas ranging from streetscape improvements, to public art projects, to new arts programming and events. The adoption of this plan ensures that the Creative District will continue to develop and strengthen Ogden’s art presence. To support implementation of the plan, we intend to fund several small public art projects that will occur in the district between October 2018 and June 2019.
The Nine Rails Creative District projects will consist of five, small, separate projects completed within the creative district boundaries. The goal of the project is to increase street-level activity and vibrancy in the newly adopted district. Additionally, the project is intended to increase public engagement with the arts and to continue establishing the identity of the Creative District.
A $1,000 artist honorarium will be awarded for each of the five selected projects.
