Jeremy Fish – SF City Hall Artist in Residence

FISH_ThePaintedLadies_Art-cropped

The San Francisco Arts Commission tapped Jeremy Fish to ink 100 drawings in roughly 100 days to commemorate the 100th anniversary of City Hall. Jeremy saw it as an opportunity to raise awareness for what he considers an underappreciated 100-year-old local landmark and the fifth-largest dome structure in the world.

KQED Arts followed this great story about the public embracing illustration in a powerful way.

“As a dude who has lived here for a long time,” Fish says, “I feel like it’s my obligation to engage the new San Franciscan and give people a reason to give a sh*t about the things that were here before.”
