San Francisco Arts Commission
Major Public Art Opportunity: City Distribution Center, San Francisco
- Budget: $1,859,800
Eligibility: Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists who reside in the United States. Entries not meeting eligibility guidelines will be withdrawn from consideration.
The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists and artist teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications for an artwork at San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s (SFPUC) City Distribution Division (CDD) at 2000 Marin Street in San Francisco. This is an opportunity to create a monumental artwork integrated into the North and West façades of the parking garage on the CDD’s new campus.
San Francisco Public Works is currently designing a new campus for SFPUC’s CDD at 2000 Marin Street to replace its existing facility at 1990 Newcomb Avenue. The new campus, situated in the Islais Creek watershed, will be the work location for managers, engineers, tradesperson, administrators, and field personnel. The campus will include five buildings (Administration, Warehouse, Shops, Auto Shop, and Parking Garage), and a landscaped Plaza.
The Arts Commission and SFPUC have identified the North and West façades of the Parking Garage as the optimal public art location. This is an opportunity for an artist to architecturally integrate an artwork into the two façades. The goal of the project is to create a site-specific, landmark artwork that is inspired by water and reflects the activities of the SFPUC’s City Distribution Division.
