2018 Bayview Artist Registry
March 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Bayview Opera House is proud to host a workshop for Bayview based or connected artists.
The focus of this workshop will be a brief overview of SFAC’s Public Art Program, with examples of types of public art projects commissioned by the program; helpful tips on submitting a competitive application; and walk-through of the online application system Slideroom. We will not be reviewing specific opportunities for upcoming projects as these have not yet been determined.
One-on-one technical assistance will be available at a later date. For more information about the projects, eligibility, budget, application process and one-on-one assistance, please go to the following webpage:
About the 2018 Bayview Artist Registry
The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) invites artists and artist teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications for inclusion in the 2018 Bayview Artist Registry for upcoming public art opportunities in the Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. Artists with a meaningful connection to the Bayview – whether they currently reside, have resided in the Bayview, or have another significant connection to the Bayview – are encouraged to apply.
The 2018 Bayview Artist Registry will be used, along with other SFAC prequalified artist pools, to select artists to be commissioned for a range of new public art projects associated with upcoming construction in the Bayview, including improvements to the Southeast Wastewater Treatment Plant, the construction of a new community center at 1550 Evans, the current Southeast Community Facility at 1800 Oakdale and the expansion of the Southeast Health Center. The Registry will be used for upcoming projects over the next 3 years.
The Arts Commission seeks visual artists working in a variety of media and artistic approaches to include in the 2018 Bayview Artist Registry. Artists whose practice includes direct engagement of the community in the design or making of the artwork are also encouraged to apply. Past public art experience is not required.
For artists who are interested in more information about applying to public art calls, the San Francisco Arts Commission will host two free workshops that will cover strategies for making a strong application and provide one-on-one technical support, with priority given to Bayview artists. More information below.
The project budgets will vary depending on the opportunity:
• Up to $15,000 for purchase of existing 2-dimensional artworks
• Up to $200,000 for small-scale projects
• Up to $400,000 for medium-scale projects
• Up to $1,000,000 for large-scale permanent projects
The artwork budgets are inclusive of all artist’s fees, as well as associated expenses for design, fabrication, insurance, transportation and installation.
