Deadline: December 5th, 2016, 11:59 p.m. PST
The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists and artist teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications for potential inclusion in a prequalified artist pool for upcoming public art opportunities. The 2017/2018 Prequalified Artist Pool will be used to select artists for commissions for a range of new permanent public art projects associated with the construction of new civic buildings, parks, playgrounds, transportation and streetscape improvement projects throughout San Francisco. Certain projects may also offer opportunities for artists to work as part of a design team along with the project architect/designer.
The Arts Commission seeks visual artists working in a variety of media and artistic approaches to include in the 2017/2018 Prequalified Artist Pool. Past public art experience is not required. These commissions are for artists who are interested in having their design concepts implemented in durable and maintainable materials*
*Due to limited resources, the Arts Commission is usually unable to commission electronic media based artworks.
Eligibility: Professional practicing visual* artists or artist teams residing in the United States. Artists who apply as part of a team may not also apply as individual artists. All artists and members of an artist team must reside in the United States to be eligible.
*The 2017/2018 Prequalified Artist Pool is not open to performing artists
Artwork Budgets: Budgets for commissioned permanent public project range up to $500,000 (inclusive of all costs).
