The Dept. of Cautionary Warning: Parody Street Sign Art Creation | SF

StoreFrontLab welcomes the absurd and uncanny world of The Department of Cautionary Warning, a playful parody where public works meets provocateur.

On May 16, 17 and 23, the Bureau of Signifiers and Poetics will accept applications for poetic markers for public space. If approved, the Bureau will produce your sign on the spot and deploy it throughout the city.

Stop by their opening reception on Friday May 15, 6-9 pm to meet Bureau staff and learn more about dept.caut.warn.
