Today the San Francisco Arts Commission announced that eight artists, including Ai Weiwei and Hiroshi Sugimoto, have been selected to develop proposals for new major commissions at three sites on Treasure Island. The eight artists were chosen from 495 applicants, and will submit proposals for million- and multi-million-dollar installations for new plazas and parks in the works. The SFAC is anticipating that proposals will be submitted in the spring and placed on public view throughout San Francisco for comment and feedback before being voted on by the Treasure Island Development Authority.
