JUNE | My Town!
San Francisco is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Images and stereotypes of our city abound. Many iconic images of San Francisco are literal: the outline of Sutro Tower against the sky, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz. Some are more ephemeral: ‘the summer of love’, beat poets and hipsters, sailors and radicals.
- vintage postcards for Our Town
However, for many of us, these images and places have no bearing on what exactly makes it special to us- what makes it HOME. What do you treasure about San Francisco; what inspires you? If you had one page to represent YOUR city what would be on it? How would you send a visual message to your friends who don’t live here, to the haters (or lovers) in L.A.? To the board of supervisors?
Come up with an image (a collage, a poster, a map, a cartoon, a flyer, or… surprise us!) that depicts your personal San Francisco.
