The San Francisco Arts Commission is seeking qualified candidates to participate in the Monuments and Memorials Advisory Committee (MMAC), a body that will host hearings with community members and establish the criteria and guidelines by which to determine the future of historic monuments in the City’s art collection.

The MMAC’s charge is to examine the history of monuments in the public realm in San Francisco, the individuals, events and ideals they venerate, and how the narratives associated with these monuments align—or do not—with San Francisco’s values today.

This advisory body will focus their research on the monuments and memorials within the Civic Art Collection. This initiative is a partnership between the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC), the Human Rights Commission (HRC) and the Recreation and Park Department (RECPARK).

There will be an information session for applicants on Friday, February 19, 2021, 12 – 1 p.m. Register for the information session.

>> Apply to the Monuments & Memorials Advisory Committee
The deadline for the application is Monday, March 1, 2021, 11:59 p.m.
