Like many communities across the country, San Francisco is reckoning with the legacy of white supremacy, patriarchy, and colonialism reflected in public spaces, specifically in monuments and memorials that are part of San Francisco’s Civic Art Collection. Many of the monuments and memorials in the collection do not reflect the diversity of San Francisco, intentionally erase stories of communities of color, and reinforce inequities in race, gender, and culture. 

The San Francisco Arts Commission, in partnership with the Human Rights Commission and the Recreation and Parks Department, has been working with Forecast Public Art to convene the Monuments and Memorials Advisory Committee of community members to develop evaluation guidelines. This process also includes community feedback in the form of a survey (open until October 31) and two public feedback sessions. 

The San Francisco Monuments and Memorials Survey is now open through October 31, 2022:
