The Creators Project: San Francisco 2012 Photo Gallery

We may be back in New York City, but we still haven’t quite come off the high of our Creators Project: San Francisco 2012 event. We saw more than 25,000 San Franciscans pass through Fort Mason this weekend to experience the interactive art installations, musical performances, film screenings and panels of our two-day cultural extravaganza. Even the Mayor came out to celebrate the convergence of art and technology with us.

We’ve already recapped some of our highlights for you, but there were so many memorable moments that we had to put together another slideshow.

If you came and took photos, post a link to your pics in the comments below so we can check them out.
