Park City, UT has a wild west historic past rich in native american culture, mining, development, and tourism. This mock is for an RFP for art that would be placed in the entrance to their new library. Part of the building was a historic renovation. Their plan was to use a band of decorative metal around both the new and old buildings to combine them and represent the city’s historic mining past.
My proposal was to create poster sized full color paintings on “blueprint” paper of minimalistic, iconic images that represented the different historical periods of Park City. The paintings, done on paper, would include areas of silver leafing to match the exterior of the building. Sketched are three of about 9 images which are wild bison, mining for silver ore, and three historic buildings. Other images would include the Sundance film festival and the winter olympics.
The painted paper would have been framed between floating plexiglass and measure about 4′ in height and 30′ in length.
