The Haight and Ashbury Street destination Doolan-Larson Building has been a “museum for counterculture” since 2019, and its new resident artists certainly fits the counterculture bill. After San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish was its inaugural artist-in-residence in 2020, there’s a new resident artist whose work you’ve seen on countless groundbreaking rock-and-roll albums and historic posters.

Legendary artist Stanley Mouse designed a ton of Grateful Dead posters and album covers, and his recognizable style is also seen on album covers for Journey, Genesis, the Steve Miller Band, and Big Brother and the Holding Company. Now his Mouse House exhibition graces the walls of San Francisco Heritage’s Gallery at 1506 Haight Street through July 28.

According to an SF Heritage announcement, “Mouse’s new exhibit will showcase a career that now spans 60 years. He will also unveil a new painting of the Doolan-Larson Building, a San Francisco landmark that is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places.”
