In a Craigslist Christmas miracle that fell a few days after the holiday, San Francisco was graced with a visit from the itinerant Brooklyn artist behind the series Set In The Street, Justin Bettman, who collaborates with Gözde Eker to create unusual sets in unexpected places.
The installation on 18th Street at Valencia was assembled from free Craigslist items to evoke Christmas morning. And, with typical San Francisco rental market gallows humor, Redditors joked that the "room" could rent for $2,400 thanks to its location (utilities not included).
Naturally, this was a hit with Instagrammers strolling down the Valencia corridor, with many employing the hashtag #setinthestreet. Here's hoping it'll be back again someday, but until then, you can check out some of Bettman's other work here.
Behind the scenes of @justinbettman's Set in the Street shoot yesterday. It was a ton of fun to help out and witness the transformation of 18th St. and Valencia. I hear it's been removed now but head over to #SetintheStreet to check out how people interacted with the scene. Follow @justinbettman for more installations.
