The San Francisco Arts Commission invites artists to submit qualifications to design and fabricate a plaque honoring the late Mayor Edwin Lee. The plaque will be installed in the Mayor Edwin M. Lee International Terminal Departures Hall of the San Francisco International Airport.
BUDGET: $42,000 (installation to be performed by others)
ELIGIBILITY: Professional artists residing in the United States
DEADLINE: January 8, 2020, 11:59 AM PST
San Francisco International Airport is renaming the International Terminal Departures Hall in honor of the late San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee. On behalf of the Airport, the Arts Commission will manage the artist selection process and Artist’s contract for design and fabrication of a bronze plaque honoring the late Mayor Edwin Lee for the Departures Hall. The plaque will be 5 ft. x 5 ft. and will feature a bas relief portrait of the Mayor along with biographical text. The format of the plaque will be similar to the existing plaque honoring Henry Berman. The plaque will be located between aisles six and seven of the Departures Hall of the International Terminal. Funding for the project will be from the Airport. The completed plaque will not become part of the Civic Art Collection.
After the application deadline, the Arts Commission staff will establish an artist qualification panel consisting of two arts professionals and one Arts Commission staff member to screen the applicants to establish the pool of artists best qualified to execute the project as evidenced by examples of past work. The list of qualified artists will be presented to the Mayor Edwin Lee Plaque Project Review Panel consisting of a representative of the Arts Commission, a representative of the Airport Commission, a member of the Ed Lee Dedication Community Advisory Board, an Arts Commissioner, and one outside arts professional. The panel will identify three finalists who will be invited to develop a maquette for the plaque. Each finalist will be paid an honorarium of $1,000.
The Mayor Edwin Lee Plaque Review Panel will reconvene to consider the finalists’ proposals in an interview format and will choose one proposal to recommend to the Arts Commission and the Airport Commission. Both the Arts Commission and Airport Commission must approve the selected proposal.
All Arts Commission meetings and Public Art Selection Panel meetings are open to the public and are posted on the Arts Commission website at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting.
