Rebar seeks an outstanding individual to join our growing team of professional artists and designers!

Rebar is a small and growing art and design studio located in San Francisco’s Mission District. Our projects occupy the intersection of art, design and ecology, but span many disciplines and often engage outside collaborators. Architecture, landscape and art practice are the core skillsets with which we approach the world. Though our image is often rightly associated with guerrilla tactics, we have developed a professional art and design studio that explores some of the most interesting projects in the contemporary urban landscape. Our clients include museums, public agencies, private companies, neighborhood groups, architects and developers and arts organizations.

Rebar’s ongoing art practice often involves a method of sampling and remixing, similar to the methods employed by DJs. Our artwork radically decontextualizes ordinary objects and materials as a strategy for exploring shared structures of cultural symbolism and to generate new forms of meaning. This conceptual approach has resulted in artworks rendered in a diverse variety of media, including earthworks, monumental steel sculpture and temporary performance installation.

Current Opening: Associate Artist (3-4 days/week contract position to start, with opportunity to become full-time employee)

To expand our art practice, we are seeking energetic and well-­rounded applicants who have a passion for artmaking and exceptional spatial/visual communication skills to turn art concepts into masterfully constructed artworks. The right candidate operates in the sweet spot of professionalism, confidence, imagination and a sense of humor.
