The South Salt Lake Arts Council and Utah Arts Alliance are proud to announce that they have received funding from the Utah Department of Heritage & Arts for the commission of a Spike 150 Celebratory Mural for 2019! Spike 150 is Utah’s celebration of the 150-year anniversary of the Golden Spike. One of the 2019 Mural Fest commissions will be designated specially to commemorate and celebrate one of the most iconic and life-altering events in America’s history, the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, which happened in Utah on May 10, 1869. Note: This project will have a separate application process from the regular Mural Fest application process. Stay tuned for more information on timeline and how to apply as an artist.
Spike 150 Mural will reflect on the history and industry of railroad development in Utah and South Salt Lake and will be located on a historically significant line of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad. The mural will be located in the city’s Creative Industries Zone, an area that is converting from former industries of the 20th Century to creative businesses of the 21st century. Utah Arts Alliance, South Salt Lake Arts Council, Spike 150, the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts and Beehive Distilling are project sponsors and partners.
