Jeremy Fish researched the history of the city that he calls home in order to complete these designs. The theme of the exhibit is centered on the adventurous spirit of the pioneers that laid the foundation for San Francisco and the residue of their efforts that can still be seen today. On the dawn of the west coast Fish states, “Young men and women were finding millions in gold, just as fast as they lost it at the gambling table, or to a thief.”

Through this work the artist leads you on a virtual tour of the historic bars of the area including “The Fierce Grizzly” where a live bear was chained to the wall and “The Boars Head” that featured unsavory acts with swine.
