Forget SFMOMA. To see cutting-edge art, you need not pay eight bucks to mix 'n' mingle with the tourist trade. Just open your door and head to the nearest telephone pole, utility box or construction site. There, many of the city's artists are showing their latest works. But move quickly, because this is one exhibit that changes often. Here's a sampling of what's up right now.

Car Killer: Waller and Pierce, northwest corner, utility box

Warned: Valencia and 13th, underneath the freeway

Missing Child: Market and Noe (already removed from Bay Guardian box)

Seen any other works of street art you think the kids should know about? Done some yourself? Help us catalog the scene in future issues by sending a photo (or at least the location) to Real Art c/o San Francisco Metropolitan, 1776A 18th St., SF, 94107 (or email us).
