The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists and artist teams residing in the United States to submit qualifications for artist-designed fence panels. As part of the 11th and Natoma Park development,

San Francisco Recreation and Parks (RPD) plans to install an 11-foot high, powder-coated aluminum perimeter fence and entry gate along the 11th Street frontage of the park, which provides an opportunity for the integration of a permanent public artwork.
