OGDEN — Artists are being sought to make a lasting statement on the new Marshall White Center which is currently under construction.

According to a press release from Ogden City Arts, the group is seeking to “commission an individual artist or a group of up to three separate artists to work as a team for the Marshall White Center public art project.” The call for artists is nationwide.

“Once selected, the artist or artist team will produce relief sculpture and or mural-type artwork of any media that is durable, low maintenance, and metalwork-type media for the exterior portion of the project,” the release said. “The budget for this commission is $200,000. It is broken down into three project areas: four hallway panels, an entryway wall, and an exterior sculpture for the wall of the main entrance.”

Interested parties are asked to submit a letter of interest, resume, professional references and up to 10 images of previous public work by Jan. 31. Submissions will be accepted using callforentry.org.

“It is an honor to invest in Public Art as a remembrance of the life and service of Marshall N. White, his dedication and sacrifice to our city, and the vital community resources the Marshall N. White Center provides Ogden residents,” Jake McIntire, member of the Ogden City Arts Advisory Committee and Chair of its Public Art Subcommittee, said in the release. “We aim for the Public Art at this new facility to not only add visual character but to become part of the building’s spirit-a representation of what this place truly means to our community now and into the future.”
