Brief Description

The artwork budget is $750,000 for the purchase of an existing suspended large-scale sculpture / lighting artwork. This budget includes the purchase price of the artwork, artist / gallery fees, transportation and installation of artwork at San Francisco International Airport. The Terminal design offers a number of opportunities for large scale, visually dramatic artworks that will mark intersections, terminuses, and create more defined architectural spaces within the larger building. One such opportunity is for a large-scale suspended sculptural form at the end of Boarding Area B; this location is referred to as the ‘End of Pier’. The approximate dimensions of space for the artwork is 30’ x 45’ (1,350 square feet). The artwork will act as an iconic landmark; a visual signifier for the terminus of the space.
