Newsom Bust Rendering (PDF)
The Examiner tells the story:
“We are delighted to offer this opportunity to commemorate Gavin Newsom, the youngest mayor of San Francisco, and his important legacy,” said Meg Spriggs, ArtCare board president, wrote in a Nov. 10 letter to Tom DeCaigny, director of cultural affairs for the Arts Commission.
Spriggs also oversees the multifamily investments for Shorenstein Properties, which is owned by the well-known Shorenstein real estate family. ArtCare’s advisory board includes Diane “DeDe” Wilsey, president of the Board of Trustees of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and PJ Johnston, a spokesperson for Willie Brown when he was mayor and currently a communications consultant, according to the ArtCare website.
“ArtCare would like to present a gift to The City of a life-size bronze portrait bust depiction of Gavin C. Newsom, the 42nd Mayor of San Francisco,” Spriggs wrote in the letter. “We hope for it to be displayed on the mayor’s balcony at San Francisco City Hall, near the Office of the Mayor, together with the three other portrait bust sculptures currently located there of other prominent mayors in the history of the City.”
Those other mayor’s include Brown, Dianne Feinstein and George Moscone.
