How often does “The Bard” get honored in street art? Not often enough!

Free stoplight

Well I’ve seen a lot of free stuff on the sidewalks of San Francisco, but this one was a surprise. Be sure to bring a truck, a really big wrench, and a screwdriver. It’s still plugged in and seems to be in fine condition.

Spotted at 18th and Guerrero.

Hippies love Real California Cheese

April 27th, 2011

Who doesn’t love cheese? (Aside from vegans, and we all know they don’t count.) Even hippies from San Francisco love cheese, as seen in this 1997 TV spot for Real California Cheese.

Goodbye, tiger.

You know that fantastic mural of a tiger on 15th and Valencia? The one on the side of Pica Pica?

Well, it’s gone.

What happened to the tiger?!
Sad day indeed. Goodbye, tiger.

UPDATE: Walked by today, saw this. Don’t get me wrong, this is obviously skilled work; but it’s really generic compared to what was there before.

Guerrilla bench activism

April 25th, 2011

Public space Public space Rose demonstrating the bench Public space

Recently, an anti Sit/Lie activist created and placed public benches around the city. These guerrilla benches are made out of recycled wood pallets, and come with a manifesto wheat-pasted onto a nearby utility pole.

Interestingly, San Francisco’s sidewalks once had public benches. But they were removed a decade ago. Why? Well the reasons sound very familiar if you paid attention to the Sit/Lie arguments: homeless people and drug addicts used the benches. (I guess the next step will be to remove the sidewalks, since homeless people have been known to use those.)

Anyhow, if you’d like to use a guerrilla bench, there is one by the abandoned building at 15th and Mission.
