Art Proposals for the the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing Administrative Offices Public Art Project
The San Francisco Arts Commission is conducting a selection process to choose an artwork for the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing’s new Administrative Offices and Client Access Point at 440 Turk Street. The project involves the remodel of an existing building at 440 Turk for the purposes of serving as administrative offices for the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH), and providing certain client services. The goal is to create a signature artwork for the Access Point wall that will create an atmosphere of dignity and respect, and follows the principles of “evidence based art” by being supportive to clients experiencing stress, symptoms of mental illness, and other negative impacts of homelessness. Three artists were chosen as finalists by a Selection Panel to create site-specific proposals for the new Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing Access Point wall: Johanna Poethig, Eric Rewitzer, and Muzae Sesay.
