Public Art Project

Art on Market Street Poster Series

In partnership with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and Clear Channel, the San Francisco Arts Commission has commissioned new artworks from artists on an annual basis since 1992. 

Now in its 31st year, the Art on Market Street program has partnered with over 120 artists since its inception, commissioning over $1.2 million worth of art, showcasing a wide breadth of artistic styles, themes and topics centered around San Francisco.

Up to four artists are commissioned annually by the Arts Commission to create a series of at least six unique works of art that responds to a theme specific to San Francisco. 

Posters are displayed along Market Street between 7th Street and the Embarcadero at 15 SFMTA transit shelters.


The 2023 Art on Market Street Poster Series theme, “Comics 2.0”, is a continuation of the 2022 poster series theme based on the artistic medium of comics. Artists that have been selected to be featured in 2023 include: Peter and Maria HoeyRina Ayuyang, Minnie Phan and Triple Dream Comics.
