LAST CHANCE TO APPLY!

The San Francisco Arts Commission’s Public Art Program recently issued two Request for Qualifications for upcoming public art opportunities, see details below. The deadline for both calls is Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 5 PM (PST). Please note that if you applied to the 2009 Bay Area Artist Registry, you must reapply to be considered for future projects. Applications for both the 2011/2012 Prequalified Artist Pool and the Public Safety Building Public Art Program must be submitted separately via Slideroom, an online application system. There is no charge to apply.
