Working for You
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all surface transportation in the City, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) are teaming up to give out free bicycle lights and safety information as part of their "Light up the Night" campaign.
SF Arts Commission presents: StreetSmARTs
StreetSmARTS mural program connects established urban artists with private property owners to create vibrant art and make the property less likely to be vandalized.
SFAC created a pool of established urban artists.
Participating private property owners may select an artist from that pool to create an original mural on their property, aligning with the neighborhood's aesthetic.
Artists who are interested in participating in the next round of StreetSmARTS should sign up for the CAE e-Newsletter to be notified of the call for artists. Property owners who are interested in having a mural placed on one of your exterior walls should contact Tyra Fennell at 415-252-2597 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
. Priority will be given to properties in Chinatown, Bayview, Bernal Heights, Mission, Tenderloin, and Central Market neighborhoods, which are close to Where Art Lives school sites. Free Bicycle Lights!
A white front light and red rear reflector (or light) are required by law when riding at night, yet some cyclists either cannot afford lights or are not aware of the law. The "Light up the Night" campaign will target these cyclists by issuing free lights and talking with them about the importance of always using lights at night.
