Brief Description

Sculpture Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou at San Francisco Main Library. By honoring one of the most significant literary artists and activists of our time, the artwork will be an ever-present role model and inspiration to girls and young women. While most of the sculptures in the City’s collection that honor individuals recognize white men, the sculpture of Dr. Maya Angelou will redress this gender imbalance by not only honoring a woman but a woman of color. Project Budget: Finalist Honoraria:$2,000 plus travel allowance up to $1,000 for out of town artists. Artist’s Contract: The artist’s contract for artwork will be $180,000, inclusive of all artist's fees, and associated expenses for design, structural engineering, fabrication, insurance, transportation and consultation during installation. Installation Allowance (under a separate contract between the Commission and an art handler): $20,000
