Lights on Market Street
In 2010, San Francisco was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts’ Mayors Institute of City Design grant for The ARTery Project, a proposal to jumpstart Mid-Market revitalization between UN Plaza and 6th Street, through short term expanded arts programming and long term investment in the arts organizations that make Mid-Market their home. As the signature initiative of The ARTery Project, Lights on Market Street marks the gateways to Mid-Market with three large-scale public lighting installations. The interactive nature of the site-specific light installations encourages passersby to see the neighborhood in a new light. Along with The ARTery Project’s yearlong calendar of arts and cultural public events, visitors are inspired to return again and again to the district.
