Entries sought for mansion's anniversary

In commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the Utah Governor's Mansion, the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Olympic Winter Games of 2002 (SLOC) and the Utah Division of State History are asking artists and designers to submit original artwork to be considered for carving on the mansion exterior.

The designer with the winning entry will also be awarded $1,500 and the design will be used for two limited edition Olympic pins.Entries may be in any medium, should be created to scale and be as three-dimensional as possible. The artwork, completed application and resume must be received by SLOC by 5 p.m. on July 20. Designers must be Utah residents.

The design will be judged by a two-phase process. The first phase will be a technical review in which the entry will be judged solely on whether it can be executed. Entries that pass the technical review will be forwarded on to a jury consisting of an artist and representatives from SLOC's arts and culture program and the Utah Division of State History.

Announcement of the winning entry is scheduled for late July. The carving will begin in August, executed by artisans from State Stone, Inc.
