These park areas are heavily utilized for recreation play and tournaments throughout the season and include spectator seating, picnic tables, concessions, and ball fields.
One mural will be installed at each of the two complexes- one on the exterior of the Softball Complex tower structure and the other on the exterior of the Baseball Complex structure. Artists may submit a proposal for either or both mural locations for consideration.
The organizations mentioned above are pleased to provide an opportunity for any Utah artist or Utah artist lead team to respond to this RFP with a mural proposal.
