Art as Therapy


with Jessica Hische




Tue., Jan. 31 – Tue., Jan. 31, 2017
6:00PM – 7:30PM
location: Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch

Jessica Hische is an award-winning lettering artist and author. Her clients include Wes Anderson, Penguin Books, The New York Times and The USPS, who have just released the fourth stamp featuring her artwork, the 2017 Love Stamp created in collaboration with Louise Fili. In this talk, Jessica will talk about recent work, struggling to stay small in a city focused on scale, and how sometimes the only excuse you need to make art is the "selfish" pursuit of happiness.
