FIFTY24SF in association with Upper Playground and the San Francisco Arts Commission are proud to present “O Glorious City.” Now open to the public on the Ground Floor of San Francisco’s City Hall, the exhibition features 100 newly commissioned works of art by Jeremy Fish. “O Glorious City” features both drawings and photographs about San Francisco, with many relating specifically to historic City Hall. As part of his process to create this exceptionally large body of work, Fish assumed the role of the first official Artist in Residence at City Hall with gusto. The show’s title, “O Glorious City”, comes from a text written by former Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor inscribed in the rotunda of City Hall: “San Francisco, O glorious city of our hearts that has been tried and not found wanting, go thou with like spirit to make the future thine.”
O Glorious City
A solo exhibition celebrating SF City Hall’s 100th birthday

“Just imagine the pleasures of public transportation if we were riding around in sweet dachshund busses, driven by wonderful british short haired cats. I have been unable to drive my van recently, and as I take public transportation, this dog bus and muni driver cat fantasy, make the drive much more pleasant. Hop on a dog today and high five the cat as you pay your fare. San Francisco is still the best city in the world, get out there and explore it.”
– Jeremy Fish
Limited Edition of 100, Signed & Numbered Prints by Jeremy Fish are now available at upperplayground.com/
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
