This temporary art project for the Medical Center at Mission Bay construction site perimeter will be the first project in an ambitious art program. It will reflect UCSF’s commitment to integrate art into the fabric of the new facilities as well as engage the surrounding community. The fence will be in use for approximately 3 years and the selected projects may be rotated or may remain for the duration of the construction process with the possibility of becoming a permanent art project within the hospitals.
