By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of San Francisco has teamed up with the San Francisco Arts Commission on a new art installation that will serve as an official gateway to the Bayview neighborhood.

Famed public artist Cliff Garten designed the sculpture located at the intersection of Third Street, Arthur Avenue and Cargo Way.

“The Port is proud to collaborate with the Bayview community and the San Francisco Arts Commission to enhance Islais Creek Gateway area with the installation of a magnificent art sculpture,” said President of the San Francisco Port Commission Kimberly Brandon. “The sculpture is the newest addition to the Bayview Gateway open space, which was improved by the Port in 2015, and adds to the series of recent public realm and Blue Greenway improvements in the area including: Bayview Rise, Heron’s Head Park, Cargo Way bicycle facility and Heron’s Head Park improvements. The Gateway is a long-envisioned improvement by and for the Bayview community, and can be enjoyed by all San Francisco residents and visitors alike.”
