2009 Bay Area Artists Registry:
Introducing the 2009 Bay Area Artists Registry, a project of the Arts Commission’s
Public Art Program.

The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists to apply for the 2009 Bay Area Artists Registry. This registry will be used to select artists for a range of new public art opportunities associated with the construction of new civic buildings, parks and playgrounds as well as transportation and streetscape improvement projects. Given the great diversity of public art project opportunities, the Arts Commission seeks to include in the 2009 Bay Area Artists Registry artists working in a variety of media and artistic approaches, and especially those artists who are interested in having their design concepts translated into durable and easily maintained materials.

Application deadline: Monday, March 23, 2009, 5:00 PM (PST) For more information on the registry and the applicant workshops, go to: www.sfartscommission.org/pubartcollection.

Eligibility: Artists residing in the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties
Budgets: approximately $30,000 to $200,000
All application materials must be submitted online via CaFÉ at www.callforentry.org


Also there are 2 applicant workshops open to Bay Area artists:
Interested artists may attend an applicant workshop to find out more about the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Public Art Program and the project opportunities associated with the 2009 Bay Area Artists Registry, and to receive instructions on submitting a registry application through CaFÉ. While attendance at an applicant workshop is not required, applicants to the registry are encouraged to attend. The same information will be presented at both workshops, and applicants need only attend one. The workshops are free and open to the public.
