1. Join the Story Board
What’s YOUR vision? Take a minute to stick your visionary idea for Bartlett Street or the MCM on Storyboard SF. More public art? Different street design? More this, less that?? Your turn to tell. Hosted by Chris Treggiari.
2. Enter the Tea Pot
The TeaPot Cube will be illuminated with prints from three local artists and a chance to screen print your own holiday wrapping paper! Warm yourself with tea and recycle paper into fun wrapping. Thanks to Tea Pot SF for hosting! Want to bring your art to Bartlett? Email
