Comment Period Extended: Glen Canyon Recreation Center Renovation Proposals for Public Art Feedback accepted, Through July 8th

Hi Everyone!

As some of you may know, all public capital projects like the upcoming renovation of the Glen Canyon Recreation center, include a public art component.

We have been working with the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Department of Public Works artists to develop artwork that will highlight the aspects of the park that you told us were important to you. Most of you mentioned in the survey we passed out that Glen Canyon Park’s rich natural and/or cultural history were important aspects for them to consider. We provided this information to the artists.

The three finalist’s preliminary proposals may now be viewed on the web and in person at the Recreation Center. Click here to view.

They may also be viewed inside the hallway at the Glen Canyon Park recreation center from June 4th  and NOW EXTENDED TO JULY 8Th!.  These finalists – Mark Brest van Kempen, John Roloff, and Chris Sollars – were selected by the Public Art Selection Panel to create proposals for the park. More details about the selection process can be found on the web.

Please take a few moments to view the proposals, either in the comfort of your own home or in person, and provide us your comments.  A link to the comment form can be found on the web, along with the proposals.

Please provide your comments to Zoe Taleporos at the Arts Commission, at zoe.taleporos@sfgov.org, or 25 Van Ness Avenue, Suite 345, by July 8th. at 5 pm.  Your responses will be summarized and shared with the Selection Panel for this project.

The winning proposal will be selected at the Final Selection Panel meeting where the public is welcome to attend.

If you have any questions, please contact me at karen.mauney-brodek@sfgov.org or (415) 575-5601.

Best

Karen
