Treasure Island Arts Master Plan

The Treasure Island Arts Master Plan is a long-term project focused on increasing the island’s public art program and collection. The Arts Master Plan will be funded by 1% of the island’s redevelopment costs. These funds will be used exclusively for the enhancement and activation of the public realm with art programming on both Treasure and Yerba Buena Island. This public art program will provide various opportunities for artists, such as an Artist-in-Residency program and both permanent and temporary artwork installations.

All inquiries and proposals are handled by the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC), the lead agency in charge of developing the Public Art Program and the Arts Master Plan.
