An art proposal for public art to be installed on Van Ness Avenue after the construction of the Van Ness Corridor Transit Improvement Project has been announced by the San Francisco Arts Commission. The public art proposal from selected artist Jorge Pardo is on exhibit now through Monday, September 28, at the San Francisco Public Library's Main Branch in the entrance atrium near Grove Street, and on the San Francisco Arts Commission website.
