West Jordan Art in the Park 2024- Artist Applications



West Jordan is taking a bold step towards fostering the arts within its community with the creation of a new public art program. Building upon the foundation of West Jordan Arts, the Cultural Arts Society of West Jordan, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has been established to bring a diverse range of artistic experiences to the west side of the Salt Lake Valley. From performing arts to musical arts, visual arts to literary arts, the city is dedicated to enriching the lives of its residents with a vibrant cultural tapestry.
