The Jeremy Ranch Roundabouts will be important focal points signifying a major gateway to Summit County that will serve residents and millions of annual visitors. The roundabout encompasses significant modes of transportation carrying people to and from the area, including the surrounding local restaurants, shops, recreation sites, and businesses as well as providing a primary connection to the local Park City neighborhoods, such as Jeremy Ranch and Pinebrook.
The SCPAAB seeks an artist or artist-led team to create an artwork that:
Dates are subject to change, except the application deadline of February 10, 2020 at 5:00 PM MST.
The SCPAAB, in consultation with Summit County staff, will review all properly submitted applications and will select a short-list of three finalists to enter into the design/development phase to propose artwork for review. All three selected finalists will enter into a design/development contract with the County. Finalists will receive a $2,000 stipend for all design development, meetings, and community engagement, which is inclusive of any travel expenses, hotel, shipping, etc.
Finalists will participate in an initial orientation and question/answer session (via Skype/in-person). This first finalist meeting is meant to orient the selected finalists to the project and to hear from and ask questions of the community, the SCPAAB, and other project partners to help inform their design. Artists are also invited to make additional site visits to conduct additional community engagement and outreach; successful proposals will incorporate insight from the community. Additional background on the project site is available on https://www.summitcounty.org/1005/Email-Updates.
During the second meeting, the selected finalists will present their conceptual proposals in-person to the SCPAAB and project partners. The site-specific proposals should convey their ideas and plans through scale designs, renderings and/or scale models with a statement that describes, in detail, the project’s intent, proposed materials, fabrication and installation methods, project schedule and an itemized budget. Artists shall provide detailed information in their proposal for how they anticipate anchoring or supporting their artwork so that it withstands all outdoor conditions. The art must take into consideration variable climate, such as high winds, temperature, snow, and account for the impacts of exhaust fumes from passing vehicles. Proposed artwork must be located in an area not shown as being landscaped or planted and should provide a foundation and conduit plan (if required) by mid-May if landscaping adjustments
need to be made.
Finalists’ submissions will be reviewed by SCPAAB and County departments for feedback on relevant environmental, legal, and/or financial issues related to the designs. One artist or artist-led team’s proposal will be accepted by
the SCPAAB and recommended to the County Manager for final approval; the artist and the County will enter into a commissioned work agreement. The County Manager may seek input from County Council. The selected artist/team will be required to provide General Liability and Auto insurance as specified in the agreement. SCPAAB reserves the right to not undergo a finalist application review if they deem it unnecessary.
The selection of an artist or artist-led team and alternate team for this project will be based on the following criteria:
