The artists were in town recently to talk with residents, and to fine tune their concept titled "transfiguration."
"Bayview Hunters Point has evolved as successions of people and their changing values have become interwoven with the natural ecology," the artists wrote in their proposal. "Transfiguration is a dynamic visual metaphor for this transformation, weaving together symbols of the neighborhood's changing economy, ecology, and community."
The artist selection process was facilitated by the SF Arts Commission for the Port of San Francisco. The team of Haddad and Drugan were among five finalists.

Haddad's and Drugan's rendering promises a dramatic column of color on the skyline, packed with symbols representing a neighborhood in transition. Lights will illuminate the piece at night, and cycle through colors to create a series of effects the artists hope will underscore their theme of transformation.
