From September to December I will be living and working on my 3rd civic Artist in Residency project here in San Francisco. In cooperation with SF Heritage, The Haight Street Art Center, and Grants For The Arts I will be the first “Haight Ashbury Counterculture Artist In Residence”. On the corner of Haight Ashbury, one of the most famous intersections in the world, I will be living and working in this magnificent three story mansion above the storefronts for the next three months. Built in 1903, The Doolan-Larson building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and designated San Francisco Landmark No. 253. The building’s longtime owner and resident, Norman Larson (1938-2018), completed his incredible restoration of the property in 2007. It is an honor and a pleasure to move across town with my cat Mrs Brown, to draw some pictures in this giant historic property in the Upper Haight. If you have any suggestions, requests, or connections to the Haight Ashbury, the Summer Of Love, the music of that era, or the 1960’s Counterculture movement that could help inspire or inform this residency project please get in touch: mrjfish@gmail.com. Thanks again to everyone involved in this wonderful opportunity
