1500 Mission Street Atrium Lobby Public Art Project Artist Proposals
The San Francisco Arts Commission is supporting the 1500 Mission Street Capital Improvement Project with the commission of a signature public artwork. 1500 Mission Street is being developed by the City as a permit center and office building that will be occupied by several City departments including Building Inspection, Planning, and Public Works. The new City building will be a 16-story tower on 11th Street between Market and Mission Streets, and the newly commissioned large-scale artwork will be suspended in the three-story atrium lobby of the building. The artwork is intended to create a sense of place, as well as delight and visual engagement for the building’s users. Four artists were chosen as finalists by a Public Art Selection Panel to create site-specific proposals for the 1500 Mission Street Atrium Lobby opportunity: Sanaz Mazinani, Tomás Saraceno, Ranjani Shettar, and Sarah Sze.
