If you make public art, the city of San Francisco is offering two chances to apply for a piece of millions in grant funding:
1. Prequalified Artist Pool
Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to apply to the 2011/2011 Prequalified Artist Pool to be considered for upcoming public art projects.
Budgets range from $30,000- $200,000
Eligibility: Professional practicing artists or artist teams residing in the Western States (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming).
2. Public Safety Building Public Art Program
The new Public Safety Building will be the first civic building located in the Mission Bay neighborhood. Several art opportunities for both interior and exterior public art projects are available. Please note: applying to the 2011/2012 Prequalified Artist Pool does not make you automatically eligible for this project. In order to be considered for both, you must submit two separate applications.
Budget: $2.6 million for multiple projects to be implemented at this site.
Eligibility: Professional practicing artists or artist teams residing in the United States.
