Ms. Teriosa is an abandoned storefront on 24th Street, converted into an interactive art installation for the Art in Storefronts project.

There's a box with cards (sometimes?) you can fill out with questions for the mythical fortune teller Ms. Teriosa, who will someday respond. The responses tend to be witty and delightful, with a good attitude and awareness of the neighborhood - it's worth stopping by to read all of them.

The window at times fills completely with answered queries, but new questions are cycled in periodically, probably every week or two.

Mission Loc@l articles with pictures of most of the cards: one two three

the writing on the cards is a consistent delight ms.teriosa often seems to be out of cards, but people improvise around cards often reference missiony places and things
