Attention Graphic Designers and Visual Artists!

By April 13, 2020News

The Yerba Buena District is home to many of the biggest museums and cultural centers in San Francisco where people come from all over the world to visit. Part of the YBCBD mission is to help promote the neighborhood as a destination for unique cultural discoveries, public performances, and memorable, unexpected artistic experiences.

Recently, the YBCBD has installed new Bigbelly “smart” refuge collection units that are instrumental in keeping the district cleaner. These units are also a wonderful opportunity to artistically enhance and promote our community with original artwork by local artists who can help us proudly announce the artistic atmosphere of the district.

In total there are 22 YBCBD Bigbellys in the neighborhood. We are looking to replace the graphic wraps at thirteen (13) of the locations. We are seeking artists/designers to create 2D flat work designs for three to four units each. There are no limitations for the theme of designs submitted. A committee will select artists based on the design theme described in the application enclosed. The three selected artists will each receive up to $1,000 for their final artwork depending on the amount of units designed to be placed on the units. The art will be displayed for approximately one year.

If you’re interested in submitting for this opportunity, please fill out the enclosed application no later than June 26, 2020 at midnight.
