With their lobbying efforts beginning in 2006, the San Francisco Arts Commission convinced the intergovernmental agency developing the center to commit $4.75 million to on-site public art. Ranging from designed floors to interactive fountains, this funding supported work by James Carpenter, Julie Chang, Jenny Holzer, and Ned Kahn. These works are in addition to Jim Campbell’s Day for Night, a recently unveiled LED video piece covering the top 130 feet of neighboring Salesforce Tower, which is the second tallest building west of the Mississippi.
