Art in Storefronts

Remnants of a GNC, 24th St.

An “attractive display to draw potential renters” sets off an alarm or two, but Art in Storefronts sounds like a good little project with a local focus if you can make a new piece in time. They seem to be more receptive to multimedia installations but if you print large, I’d imagine it would work. More info is available in the application form available from the SFAC website. The run-down:

– Deadline to apply: Aug. 14, 2009
– Applicants may be an individual or an artist collective / organization.
– Applicants must be based in San Francisco.
– You may apply for more than one neighborhood, each with a separate application.
– Only new artwork made specifically for this project will be considered.
– Proposals must respond to the history or unique character of the neighborhood.
– Priority will be given to artists that live or work in the neighborhood.
– Selected artists will be given $500 to cover artwork production expenses and time.

Sept. 1-20: Central Market (From 5th to 9th), 10 storefronts
Oct. 1-23: Bayview (3rd St from Evans to Williams), 3 storefronts
Oct. 1-30: Tenderloin (Taylor from Market to Ellis), 3 storefronts
Oct. 1-Nov. 20: Mission (24th Street Corridor from Mission Street to Potrero), 3 storefronts

The project will run through January 2010.
