More bunnies. Yes, more are here in SF.

Unlike the bunnies spotted on City Hall property last fall, the replacement of the previously destroyed bunny art in the Lower Haight will officially take place this Saturday at 5pm, at the entrance of the new Haight Street Art Center at 215 Haight St. (between Laguna and Buchanan streets).

It's been nearly three years since the previous art was taken down, back then, the bunny's destruction led to a public funeral for people to pay their respects. A previous work by Jeremy Fish, the artist is looking to revamp his standing portfolio with new bronze materials.

The Lower Haight is going through a weird transition, just like a lot of neighborhoods are, It was of great importance for me to to send energy and attention and enthusiasm back into the neighborhood.
— Jeremy Fish

Artist Jeremy Fish took nine months to create the new sculpture. He raised over $50,000 from the Lower Haight Merchant and Neighbor Association for its re-creation at Berkeley's Artworks Foundry.

And once the sculpture is up for everyone to love, Fish will be giving away 100 commemorative screen printed posters at a first-come, first-serve basis at Lower Haight's Upper Playground (220 Fillmore St.)

// 215 Haight (between Buchanan & Laguna), 5 p.m. - 10 p.m., Saturday, haightstreetart.org
