Passport 2012

PASSPORT EVENT IN NORTH BEACH ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2012
Presented by the San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries

Passport is an annual DIY art collecting event benefiting the San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries. Since 2009, Passport, has been bringing together a new lineup of celebrated Bay Area artists each year and inviting the public to create a limited-edition artist’s book by collecting original, artist-designed stamps in a custom edition Moleskine “passport” notebook. This year, from noon to 4 pm, join hundreds of do-it-yourself art collectors and take to the streets of North Beach, following a designated route, to collect stamps from the artists themselves. While discovering some of the brightest spots in North Beach you can enjoy the people and small businesses that define the neighborhood’s unique cultural character.

Take a walk…

From now until September 28 when you take a walk from the Embarcadero to 8th Street on your way to Electric Works at our new location- 1360 Mission between 9th and 10th- you will enjoy the latest in Paul Madonna’s Market Street Poster Series sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
