Current Decaux Kiosk Poster
Last year, SFAC featured three of our signature Central Market projects in the Decaux kiosks, which line Market Street from the Ferry building to the Castro and are viewed by thousands of residents and visitors who traverse San Francisco’s main thoroughfare.
After a long run, the SFAC would like to refresh its Decaux Kiosk campaign with a series of six new evergreen posters that celebrate the Central Market neighborhood. The new posters will highlight the diverse art activities occurring in the corridor and developing cultural district which spans Market Street between 5th Street and U.N. Plaza and the one block radius into the Tenderloin and SOMA.
We are soliciting submissions of photographs that celebrate the artistic aspects of the community. We are looking for clear, straight forward images that focus on capturing the people of the area engaged in art-related activities. Suggested topics may include
- a theatrically lit performer at Exit Theatre or Intersection for the Arts,
- art-making at Central City Hospitality House Community Arts Program,
- street performers at the Powell Street turnaround,
- a fitting by the clothing designer at Archetype,
- an art bike rider heading up Market Street,
- a performance in KUNST-STOFF’s beautiful brick studio,
- or someone juggling lemons at the Heart of the City Farmer’s Market.
For ideas of upcoming cultural events, check out The ARTery Project calendar. The images should be in a portrait (vs. landscape) format and they should read clearly in a large-scale format.
Photographs must be original work and not copyrighted by any entities other than the person(s) submitting the photograph. Photographers will retain rights to their photographs, however the chosen photographs will become property of SFAC and SFAC retains an irrevocable license to use and reproduce the photographs for any City purpose, including publication in the Decaux kiosk series. A $600 honorarium will be paid for each selected image.
Artists should obtain release forms from their subjects which we provide in this Photo Submission Form.
Have fun exploring this neighborhood that’s bubbling with life.
