Passport is SFAC Galleries’ signature event that puts the art collecting experience in the hands of the general public! Local artists will be stationed in venues throughout Hayes Valley/Civic Center and Passport attendees can “create” their own limited-edition artist’s book by collecting original, artist-designed stamps in a customized “passport” notebook. Walking throughout Hayes Valley/Civic Center, hundreds of do-it-yourself art collectors will follow a designated route to collect stamps from emerging and established Bay Area artists while discovering small businesses in the neighborhood.

Following the event, join SFAC Galleries for a 10th Anniversary after-party from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the SFAC Main Gallery in the Veterans Building.
