Hella Damn Squirrels: We live on the banks of Lake Merritt, Oakland, and we rule with fat and fuzzy fists.[field_exhibit_locadditional_value]
Born from our love of the Oakland lakeside critters, Hella Damn Squirrels is a collection of photographs and captions describing the squirrels residing around Lake Merritt. Since 2011, our furry little friends' antics have evolved from begging for walnuts to decorating the walls in various local shows including the upcoming exhibit at the Lakeview branch of the Oakland Public Library. Hella Damn Squirrels is photographer Jennifer Hale and walnut-collector Tony Toppano. The duo have been featured in shows at the Grand Lake Café, Mini Bar in SF, Oakland’s Autumn Lights Festival, Friday Nights at the OMCA and will be featured again at the Lakeview branch of the Oakland Public Library for the months of May and June.
