With over 40 construction projects coming to Central Market, construction fences and vacant storefronts will dominate the public landscape for the next 5 years. By creating unique, engaging and informative barricades, these traditionally blank surfaces can celebrate local artists, keep people moving through the district and build excitement for new developments to come.

Please contact the Central Market Community Benefit District (CMCBD) at info@central-market.org or 415.957.5985 to connect to a creative team who will assist property owners and businesses design creative construction barricades.

    Shorenstein – 1066 Market Street

    Artist: Kristin Farr

    “The design may look like a pattern but it is not repetitive, it is drawn and painted intuitively, keeping a certain balance in mind…. I have an ongoing series called Magic Mountains using this design, and the small painting I created to be enlarged for the 1066 Market barricade is special because the shape is more of a gentle, rolling hill; a wave to guide people down Market Street. The contrasting color palettes represent the light at different times of day, and the multitude of colors echoes the vibrancy of the city.”

    Encore Housing Opportunity Fund – 1075 Market Street

    Artist: Vehicle SF

    “The design expresses the eclectic energy of the street with a suggestion of millennial playfulness. It features a progressive geometric pattern which suggests a city in the process of transformation. With many layers of imagery taken from the neighborhood, it provides equal pleasure when viewed for 2 seconds, 2 minutes, or 20 minutes.”
