Best Civic-Minded Artist 

Jeremy Fish

When the San Francisco Arts Commission wanted someone to dress up City Hall for the building's 100th anniversary last year, and become the structure's first artist-in-residence, it took a leap of faith by choosing Jeremy Fish. The leap paid off for the city and for Fish, whose eccentric illustrations of "100 things all San Franciscans should love about their city" included pigeons with knapsacks, and Fish's head peeking out from the building's dome. Fish's wicked bunny sculptures, like the one he put up a few years ago in the Lower Haight, are legendary in S.F. art circles. A New York transplant, Fish has embraced San Francisco as much as the city has embraced him.
