This notice pertains to the existing temporary interactive installation currently located on Fulton Street adjacent to the Asian Art Museum, within the Civic Center Landmark District. Installed in May of 2017, this structure consists of a wooden deck and gallery wall.

The applicant seeks to obtain an extension of the existing Certificate of Appropriateness for this project, which can be issued by the Historic Preservation Commission.
