Besides being temples of culture, knowledge and learning, there is one thing all major San Francisco museums have in common: stickers acting as proof of purchase clinging to your chest.

As bright and fashionable some them may appear to be, we eventually discard them. But where do you stick these little dots and squares?

The back of Muni seats? Random public bathrooms? Sides of our SF Weekly newsstands? (I personally stick mine to the ever growing sticker collection in the locker room at my other job.)

The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco wants to find out and has created a new hashtag for Instagram to help you create an artsy photo opp for their curious eyes.

Although #CJMRogueTicket may seem like an interesting and novel idea, it doesn't seem to have caught wind in our tech obsessed mecca yet.

There are only six photos tagged with the hashtag and all are from The Contemporary Jewish Museum's public Instagram account: @jewseum.

It looks like they can use a little help. Although we can't guarantee widespread success like other misplaced sticker companions like the "I Voted" and "Fucking Bill Murray," we can at least see where spaces these blue dots grace.

So slap them around San Francisco and don't forget to take that pic. Snap. Snap!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
