What to do
Open Request for Proposals
Request for Proposals - Cityside Park permanent public art commission
The artwork opportunity is a pedestrian-scaled sculpture or series of sculptures installed along a pathway through the park. The proposed sculpture location may be a 10’ x 20’ paved area near an open lawn known as “The Bowl”, or in other accessible paved areas in the park. The adjacent lawn area is gently sloped towards the water and includes a small, paved stage, allowing for informal amphitheater type seating for events and performances. The views to the water and the San Francisco skyline are stunning from this location.
The artwork will serve as a visual beacon for those on the waterfront promenade, inviting them into the park area. This RFP is open to professional, practicing artists within the United States including artists from abroad who reside in the United States. San Francisco Bay Area artists are encouraged to apply.
For full information please visit the SF Arts Commission's webpage for the opportunity.
