You may renew your certificate by mail or in person at the Street Artist Program office during office hours or at the administrative office in suite 325 of the Veteran's Building. Payment must be made by check or money order and paid to the order of the "San Francisco Arts Commission". Credit cards are accepted in-person at the program office or you can pay online.
