Fisher's works have been included in major museum exhibitions, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., and The Museum of Modern Art in Chicago. His art can be found in the permanent collections of museums across the country, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
