Candlestick Point Mural Art Project
FivePoint is leading the redevelopment of The San Francisco Shipyard and Candlestick communities in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood. Together, these projects will consist of up to 12,100 new homes for all income levels; over 350 acres of parks and open space; up to 5 million square feet of creative office, maker spaces and research and development labs; and a modern, bustling retail and entertainment district, punctuated with civic and public spaces. Candlestick will provide the perfect mix of a downtown vibe, while surrounded by the greenery of Candlestick State Recreational Park. It will be a conduit for connecting new neighborhoods with old; established businesses with innovation; new opportunities with local energy; and provide a new economic engine for the Bayview community.
To kick off the Candlestick development, FivePoint has partnered with Imprint City and Mural, Music and Arts Program (MMAP) to commission and manage the creation of 11 different murals based on the principles, history and components of the new development, including openness, family, opportunity, sports, and waterfront. Imprint City and MMAP engaged four local artists and several youths from around the Bayview community to create the murals. BAYCAT, a local nonprofit, has been documenting the creation and importance of the murals and those who participated in the project. These murals will be launched at an unveiling event in April. The murals will be the backbone of the new Candlestick community brand. The artwork from the murals will serve as the backdrop to the Candlestick logo and will be featured into different branding elements of the future development.
We were honored to have commissioned local artists, Malik Seneferu, Cameron Moberg, Joe Colmenares and Josue Rojas who worked with over 20 Bayview youth to conceptualized and paint the murals.
