Requests to Exhibit on Tidelands

The Port of San Diego conducts an annual review of external requests from sponsors who want to temporarily exhibit artwork or objects on Port property or donate artwork or objects to the Port of San Diego.  This review process enables the Port to effectively evaluate proposals and plan workload around projects on an annual basis. Sponsors are strongly encouraged to submit applications well in advance of desired installation time frames to ensure adequate time for conceptual development, evaluations, and internal review processes.

Applications for the 2021 review cycle are due no later than January 31, 2021 at 5 p.m.
