Call for proposal for San Francisco cell phone tour

This one looks good, Bay Area audio folks. Contact info below.


The San Francisco Arts Commission would like to develop an audio tour of the public art that
will be located in San Francisco International Airport’s new Terminal 2, which is scheduled to
open next spring. The content will be delivered through a cell phone and will also be repurposed

for an iApp that is currently being developed by the airport. The Arts Commission will retain full
copyright of the audio content and will be free to repurpose the content on an ongoing basis and
through multiple platforms.

Scope of work:
• The tour will cover 17 new and existing artworks (17 stops)
• The tour may also include supplemental layers of content that enhance several of the
stops, or content about the individual works of art.

• The tour will include actualities from interviews with the five living artists who will be
installing new works in the terminal. This will require setting up and recording the audio
remotely as several of the artists live outside of the Bay Area. This project scope does

not include traveling expenses. These recordings should be recorded at a studio or via
tape synch (with a technician located in the artist’s area).
• For the older artworks, archival audio or interviews with curators or other art experts

might be included in the stops.
• The tour should have one unifying narrator or neutral voice. Ideally, this would be a
professional actor.
• The tour should include some background/transition music, but limited since the audio

will be delivered on a cell phone.
• This project will require developing a script and interview questions from materials
provided by the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Public Art Program as well as other
outside sources.

• The Arts Commission will also need transcripts of the final audio content for ADA

Interested parties should contact Kate Patterson at 415-252-4638 or via email, kate.
