Art on Main Street
As part of the Main Street/Commerce Improvement project, the city is adding several amenities to make the area more pedestrian friendly. With funding provided by the city’s Public Works Department, an artist or artists will be commissioned to create several art benches and a gateway sculpture for the Arts District at the intersection of Main Street and Commerce. The city and the Arts Commission plan on other opportunities to place art on Main, but this will require additional funding. The Arts Commission invites members of the public to contribute to this effort.
The city can accept cash, cashier’s checks or money orders made out to “City of Las Vegas” and mailed or delivered to:

Call to Artists
The Utah Public Art Program and Utah State University Eastern are requesting artist / artist team qualifications for the creation of site specific public art for the new Central Instruction Building on the campus of Utah State University Eastern in Price, Utah.
The design of this new building makes symbolic reference to the natural setting, to the cultural and economic history of the region, and to the continuing commitment of the College to serve the people in the region. Ideally, this public art commission will harmonize with and reinforce these key symbolic messages. Apply Here!
