San Francisco Arts Commission, Call for Artists
2012 Art on Market Street Kiosk Poster Series

The Art on Market Street Program, which has commissioned new artwork by Bay Area artists on an annual basis since 1992, includes a bus kiosk poster series and other temporary projects that take place on San Francisco’s main thoroughfare.  For the kiosk poster series, the Art on Market Street Program commissions three consecutive three-month poster exhibitions annually. Each poster series consists of a set of six original and related designs that are professionally reproduced and printed as six sets of posters, 68 inches high by 47 ¼ inches wide (trim size), for installation in 36 bus kiosks on Market Street between 8th Street and the Embarcadero.  All artists’ designs must be approved by the Arts Commission and are expected to be appropriate for a broad public audience.

ELIGIBILITY: Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists working primarily in any two-dimensional media and residing in the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, SanMateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma.

BUDGET: The total budget for the design of the posters series is a not-to-exceed amount of $8,000, to include the design and all preparation work necessary to complete each poster design to the printer’s specifications. No additional funds are available.

Applications are available through SlideRoom (https://sfgov.slideroom.com/), an on-line application system for calls for entry.  There is no charge to artists for using SlideRoom.  If you are a first time user of SlideRoom, please allow adequate time to learn the use of this system.  Applications will not be accepted after the deadline.
