The internationally renowned local artist started his residency on July 8th, 2015, and is currently working to create 100 pieces of art celebrating San Francisco and City Hall. This large body of work entitled O Glorious City will be exhibited at City Hall from November 4, 2015 to February 12, 2016.

“As San Francisco City Hall celebrates its centenary birthday I want to document 100 things all San Franciscans should love about their city. I love City Hall and feel it is often overlooked as a local architectural treasure.”

Fish is interested in how people interact with City Hall, and throughout his residency he will be observing the day-to-day activity in the building, meeting with City Hall historians, and attending public meetings.
