About The ARTery Project
The ARTery Project began as a series of art events taking place in the Central Market neighborhood coordinated by the San Francisco Arts Commission with a larger vision to develop the neighborhood into a lively and sustainable cultural district with arts at its core.
In 2010, with seed funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, projects included Art in Storefronts, temporary art installations in vacant storefronts; Lights on Market Street, three site-specific light installations; Market Street Blooms, two 20-foot tall steel flower sculptures; and a series of special events such as festivals, exhibitions, and performances hosted by neighborhood arts organizations.
Through creative partnerships with neighborhood-based organizations and other city departments, The ARTery Project supports and sustains short-term, arts-based street activation and produces a monthly web based calendar of art events for the neighborhood.
