San Francisco Arts Commission’s Popular Art on Market Street Poster Series is Back


SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Director of Cultural Affairs for the San Francisco Arts Commission Luis R. Cancel announced the 2011 Art on Market Street Poster Series featuring new work by local artists Elisheva Biernoff and Ian Huebert. Biernoff will launch the series with Once Upon a Time, six original posters that present defining moments that shaped San Francisco history, from the city’s beginnings as the home of the Ohlone to the political activism of the 1970s. The posters will be displayed in the bus shelters on Market Street between 8th Street and the Embarcadero from Wednesday, May 4 through Friday, July 29, 2011. “Elisheva Biernoff has distilled San Francisco’s rich and complex history into six beautifully illustrated posters that offer Market Street pedestrians a look back in time at the people and events that formed this city into the incredible and beloved city it is today,” said Mr. Cancel.
