Call For Artists: secretEVE 2015


UMOCA and the Downtown Alliance are seeking 15 artists to participate in their secretEVE project.

secretEVE is a month long exhibition that coincides and culminates with the Downtown Alliance’s EVE events. Each accepted artist will be asked to create a single small scale site-specific installation/ art work that exists on a predetermined path from the Gallivan Center to UMOCA along Main St., 100 S., and West Temple (between 100 S. and the museum).

Each work must either be built to exist and withstand being outside for the month of December, or the artist may approach a business owner along the route to inquire about creating a work that could be installed in their store or storefront (in this case, the work must consider the business owners needs and restrictions). The Downtown Alliance will do their best to help facilitate the storefront installation.

The works will be part of a scavenger hunt. Visitors are encouraged to photograph each installation they find and post their picture to instagram with a #secretEVE hashtag.

Installations must be installed by December 1st and removed by January 4th.


UMOCA asks interested artists to send up to 5 images of their work in JPEG format or a link to a personal website to Jared Steffensen at Deadline for submissions is November 10th. Selected artists will be notified by November 12th. If you have any questions please email Jared Steffensen at the email address provided above.
