As many of you know, the San Francisco Bay Area is the home to some of the most creative people on the planet. For instance, Claire from Embergrass, who’ll you be seeing again on the LÄB very soon, lives there now. So does Scarlett, the brilliant brains behind Meridian 110. Also, I consider it my homebase, after moving there from New York City 14 years ago. I’m always intrigued by the creative goings-on up there (as in way above my current home on the Big Island) and I will be sharing with you some really great events & venues that I know you’ll want to be a part of. Here’s my first one: Papergirl San Francisco. Here’s the info they sent me. This is so cool!
“Papergirl is a community art project that distributes submitted art pieces by bicycle, freely and at random, to people in the streets of San Francisco, American paperboy style! All are welcome to participate. We think art is best when shared, why else do it? As artists, we want to express ourselves creatively, show our creations to others, and start a conversation. Every day could use more art and kindness. Won’t you join us? Send us your art, tell your friends and foes, and we’ll see you in November with tires full of air and bags full of artwork, ripe for the giving.” You can send your entries to Papergirl SF, PO Box 410156 San Francisco, CA 94141 or you can drop them off at these 6 convenient locations:
Mission Bicycle Company - 766 Valencia Street
Public Bikes - 123 South Park
Arch Drafting Supply - 99 Missouri Street
Rickshaw Bagworks - 904 22nd Street
Sports Basement - 1590 Bryant Street
SF Center for the Book - 300 De Haro Street

I think this is such a great idea! Could you see this happening in your city? I would personally guarantee that if you did this, I will help with the promotion for free. What do you think?
p.s. If you do submit something, please let them know the LÄB sent you. xoxo ~ Brett
