  • Building One Plaza:  Chakaia Booker, Ai Wei Wei, Pae White
  • Yerba Buena Hilltop Park: Chakaia Booker, Andy Goldsworthy, Hiroshi Sugimoto,

Public review and comment on Phase 1 Finalist Proposals:

Proposals for each of the three sites are on now on display through Thursday, April 5th on Treasure Island in the lobby of Building One, located at One Avenue of the Palms. Following that, the proposals will be on display in the ground floor lobby of the Veteran’s War Memorial Building, located at 401 Van Ness Avenue.  Each site will have a notebook for public comments which will be shared with the Selection Panel. Although public comments do not constitute a vote, this is a way for the public to have a voice in the process. The Selection Panel will recommend one proposal for each site for implementation. The Selection Panel also has the right to reject all proposals, if not deemed appropriate for the site.

The public can also view the proposals and submit comments on-line for each individual site:

Comments may also be emailed to sfacpublicartcomment@sfgov.org, or hand delivered/mailed to 401 Van Ness Avenue, Room 325 by April 13, 2018, 5:00 p.m.
