The Tankhead Fish is a metal sculpture that was donated by Myron Graham in 1977. This piece was suspended over the creek in San Luis Obispo’s lovely creekwalk, but was washed away during a storm in 1996. The Tankhead Fish was replicated by John’s son, Randy Augsburger following the storms and returned to its original location. Years later, after a replacement was installed, the original fish, seen here, was discovered in the creeks. It was repaired and relocated to its current location at Cheng Park.
