Treasure Island Arts Master Plan Background:

Image of TI Arts Master Plan cover pageThe Treasure Island Arts Master Plan will be funded by 1% of the construction costs of the island’s redevelopment and will be used exclusively to enhance and activate the island’s public realm with artworks and art programming. This public art programming, which will be guided by an Arts Master Plan document, is anticipated to be initiated in phases starting in fall 2018 and will continue over the 15 to 20-year span of the funding and construction cycle of the redevelopment project.  The San Francisco Arts Commission is the lead agency charged with developing the Public Art Program and the Arts Master Plan.

The San Francisco Arts Commission, on behalf of the Treasure Island Development Authority, plans to commission three large-scale permanent public artworks for Building 1 Plaza, Waterfront Plaza, and Hilltop Park, located on Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island, as the first in a series of artworks for the Treasure Island Art Program.  Proposals for each of the three sites are on now on display through April 5th on Treasure Island in the lobby of the Administration Building, located at One Avenue of the Palms.
