Three Creeks Confluence Open Public Art Request for Qualifications
The Three Creeks Confluence project seeks to restore, highlight and reactivate a formerly neglected area along the Jordan River in Salt Lake City and to highlight the site where Red Butte Creek, Emigration Creek, and Parleys Creek merge with the Jordan River. The site, known as the Three Creeks Confluence, is a unique geographic location within the Jordan River watershed and provides an opportunity to establish a green infrastructure asset along the Jordan River corridor, Jordan River Parkway Trail, and within the Glendale neighborhood.
This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is specifically seeking artists to work collaboratively with the design team to produce permanent works of art that will allow the community to interpret the environmental and social history of the site. Artists that are familiar with the Glendale Neighborhood and the unique hydrology of Salt Lake City are encouraged to apply.
Open to professional artists or artist-led teams residing in Utah. Artists residing in or that are from Glendale are encouraged to apply.
Submissions are due by 5 pm MDT, Tuesday, May 22, 2018
The Three Creeks Confluence is the underground convergence of three urban creeks – Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley's Creeks – and the Jordan River. This project began as the first phase and centerpiece of the award-winning visioning document, 100 Years of Daylighting. The Seven Canyons Trust has successfully partnered with Salt Lake City and the Jordan River Commission to bring this award-winning project from a concept to a reality to uncover this 200-foot stretch of creek.
