Visit favorite spots in the Mission District or discover new ones while collecting original stamps created by Bay Area artists for Passport 2009. Stop by Passport 2009 home base at Mission Playground to purchase a passport, pick up a map of locations, learn more about the SFAC Gallery, or relax and enjoy $1 hot dogs in the park with the whole family.

Participants purchase a passport booklet, (featuring a cover-design created by artist Tucker Nichols specifically for this project,) and then follow a map to various neighborhood locations where they can collect artist-made stamps. Passport 2009 will take place in San Francisco’s Mission District, celebrating its longstanding status as the hub of the city’s art community. After a day spent discovering some of the brightest spots of this lively neighborhood, each passport holder will have a limited-edition book with original artwork from some of San Francisco’s finest artists, both established and emerging.

Passport 2009 is organized by the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery. Proceeds from the event go toward the SFAC Gallery’s Programming Fund, which supports artist honoraria and exhibition costs.
