SAN FRANCISCO, CA – RFQ – Moscone Expansion Project

In RFQ on February 7, 2015 at 1:51 am

Moscone Center, San Francisco’s premier meeting and exhibition facility, is located in the city’s arts and culture district. The expansion project seeks to create an iconic public realm that increases Moscone’s civic presence, connecting it to the surrounding parks and neighborhood. As such, the project will replace the existing pedestrian bridge across Howard Street at Fourth Street with an expanded Park Bridge that will include landscaping and sculpture. The improvements will also enhance the pedestrian circulation and traffic flow along Howard Street. This new streetscape will include an opportunity for a highly visible large-scale sculpture located on the sidewalk just below the north end of the Park Bridge.

ELIGIBILITY: Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists who reside in the United States.

BUDGET: There are two budgets for the commissioning of new artwork or purchase of existing artwork for Moscone Center. The total budget for each opportunity is inclusive of all artist’s fees and associated expenses for design, fabrication, insurance, transportation and installation. The two budgets are: Park Bridge (several sculptures) $900,000; Howard Street (1 sculpture)   $750,000

DEADLINE: Tuesday, March 31, 2015, 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time

QUESTIONS: Zoë Taleporos, Public Art Program Associate,, (415) 252-3215
