The mission of the Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) is to support and promote community, interactive art and civic participation. BRAF works with communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world to collaboratively produce innovative, relevant and pioneering works of public art that build community and empower individuals. As of 2012, BRAF has supported more than 100 projects worldwide.

BRAF and Mayor Gavin Newsom had been behind the installations of two large-scale sculptures in San Francisco.

The First, "Temple at Hayes Green (2005)" by David Best was installed in San Francisco's Hayes Valley district. The second, Flock (2005) by Michael Christian, was erected in front of San Francisco's City Hall in the Civic Center Plaza. BRAF was the first institutional funder of the Global Lives Project, which debuted its work at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
