Central Subway Public Art Program
The City and County of San Francisco is undertaking the construction of a new subway system stretching from Chinatown to South of Market where it will connect with the T-Third Street Rail Line. Currently scheduled to be completed in 2017, the transit system will include three subway stations, one above-ground platform, and a long underground pedestrian walkway connecting the Central Subway with other public transportation. The Central Subway will provide a range of opportunities for public art and related arts programming in adjacent neighborhoods over the next ten years.

The Arts Commission worked with cultural agencies along the Central Subway corridor, local communities and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to complete a comprehensive Central Subway Arts Master Plan, which is available on this website. The Arts Commission will continue to work with the SFMTA and local communities throughout the Central Subway final design and construction phases to develop a comprehensive public art program that reflects the rich cultural and historic context within which this new transit system will be located.
