Update on Glen Canyon Recreation Center Public Art Proposals Now on View for your Feedback

Hi Everyone!

This week the finalists for the Glen Canyon Park Public Art Project go on display for public comment at the Glen Park Rec Center.   As many of you know, an artist and art proposal was not selected from the last round of proposals for art for the Rec Center Project Renovation, so these will be four new proposals.

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

They are also displayed on the SFAC website here:

As you may see, this round of proposals is focused to the south of the auditorium space, where there is currently a planting and picnic area.  We will work to make sure that picnic areas are provided in the upcoming recreation center renovation.  In our current design, a new patio with picnic areas behind the renovated recreation center is included (near the lawn area to the north of the building) and we will work with the artists and others to find a good location to incorporate picnic near the playground as well, to the south of the building.​

The artists will present their proposals to the artist selection panel on January 16, 2015, 10am – 2pm at 25 Van Ness Avenue, 8th floor conference room. At the meeting, the panel will select one proposal to recommend to the Arts Commission.  The meeting is open to the public and will include a dedicated time for public comment. An agenda will be posted on the SFAC website at least 72 hour in advance of the meeting here:
