About AASCs

These artworks were nominated by an Acquisition Award Selection Committee (AASC) typically composed of Visual Art Consultants (VACs), SFCA Board Commissioners, and SFCA staff. The role of the AASC is to make recommendations to the SFCA regarding the purchase of works of art, including the review, nomination, evaluation and selection of the recommended artworks for acquisition.
