Public Art Compromise

New, 1 comment

We told you that the ongoing saga of artist Tom Otterness' contracts would be coming to a peak on Wednesday when San Francisco's Arts Commission would be voting on whether to axe the controversial artist's contracts after it was discovered that he shot and killed a dog in the name of art back in 1977. The Arts Commission has voted to terminate one of the contracts and not the other. Otterness lost the Central Subway art contract (worth $750,000) but will still receive $700,000 to complete his statues for SF General. The city has already paid Otterness $365,750 for the piece and would have to eat it if that contract was terminated as well. [SF Appeal/previously Curbed SF]
