Journey album cover artist Stanley Mouse has a new resident artist

The Haight and Ashbury Street destination Doolan-Larson Building has been a “counterculture museum” since 2019, and its new resident artists certainly fit the counterculture bill. After San Francis artist Jeremy Fish was its first artist-in-residence of 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 has designed a ton of Grateful Dead posters and album covers, and his recognizable style can also be seen on album covers for Journey, Genesis, the Steve Miller Band, and Big Brother and the Holding Company. Now its Mouse House exhibition graces the walls of the San Francisco Heritage’s Gallery at 1506 Haight Street until July 28.

According to a 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 on the National Register of Historic Places.
