Once complete the passports become a limited-edition art book with original work by some of the Bay Area’s finest artists, some which sell for hundreds of US dollars.

Every year the event focuses on a different neighborhood in San Francisco, and this year they chose the hip and centrally located Hayes Valley. 15 local artists participating, ranging from emerging to established, and included a special stamp from the Richard Diebenkorn estate.
