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.”
