Bridge developed a maintenance plan and conducted repairs on Donald Lipsky’s beloved F.I.S.H. installation along the San Antonio Riverwalk. The fish are prone to damage during high wind events, and aging electrical components needed an update. The complex process of repairing these massive fish was handled in shop with artisanal care.

The cluster of 25 seven-foot-long creatures of hand-painted fiberglass resin are anatomically correct models of long-eared sunfish, native to the river. Impressive by day and stunningly lit from within at night, the glowing fish are a beacon from blocks away, adding color and levity to a once neglected downtown area. A 26th fish is on display in The DoSeum, San Antonio’s Museum for Kids, offering an up-close view of the installation’s vibrant detailing.
