Public Art, Where Have You Been All My Life?
San Francisco has some of the nation's most expansive collection of public art, comprising of sculptures, murals, and mosaics. Collectively, these public art pieces are worth an estimated $90 million. However, the city cannot seem to keep track of there whereabouts. The city does have an arts commission, but has not had a steady staff for much of its existence. It is important that the city ramp up its efforts to keep track of this art. This starts with better funding to the city arts commission. Many of the pieces are from world-renound artists, so we need to give them respect, and the art to ourselves to enjoy. Does everyone know where public art can be found?
