Background Brian Head Town is a small but growing mountain resort community in Southern Utah, about 40 minutes east of Cedar City. Outdoor recreation and tourism form the basis of the local economy – skiing and snow sports in the winter and mountain biking, hiking, and motorsports in the summer. Most of the 1,400 condos and cabins in Brian Head are second homes and rental units. The Brian Head Town Council recently reviewed several potential economic development initiatives the Town might consider to make the area more attractive for visitors. One such idea was to commission a public art piece that would be iconic in nature – something that serves as a major visual focal point of the Town and an organic social media marketing feature. A survey of Brian Head Town businesses, residents, and property owners showed broad support for the concept, as well as a variety of suggestions for what type of art piece might work well in Brian Head (this data will be made available to applicants upon request). Brian Head seeks qualified artists to design, construct, and install a public art piece in Brian Head that accomplishes the above-described vision. Eligibility This RFQ is open to all professional artists and/or artist-led teams residing in the western United States region, which include the following states: Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, & Nevada. To be considered, artists must have demonstrated experience accomplishing work of similar scope and scale, and using appropriate materials for climate at 10,000 ft. elevation. All applicants will be considered regardless of race, gender, gender variance, sexual orientation, national origin, age, religion, marital status, political opinion or affiliation, or mental or physical ability.
