Painted Horse for Special Recognition


DEADLINE: February 28, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. MT


 Ogden City is seeking submissions from artists of any kind to create a design for a Painted Horse for Special Recognition.  The selected artist will be required to place the design onto a miniature fiberglass horse provided by the City. 

In July of 2023, the art piece will be gifted to an important individual in the Ogden community for long-time support of an annual fireworks show.  The art piece should reflect the iconic buildings in Ogden and at Weber State University under a night sky of beautiful fireworks.  The selected artist will be provided with additional information regarding the special recognition recipient at the time the award is made. The art piece is meant to represent the various art horses that line the streets of Ogden during the summer months.
