Shepard Fairey: Graffiti Art, Obama and "Money"

(Chicago, IL, January 20th)

Internationally-recognized graffiti artist, Shepard Fairey, designed bags, stickers, and posters for Obama's Inauguration party on Jan 20th, and the full collection, including signed works, are available on Obama's newly launched Inauguration website.

Shepard Fairey was interviewed about the collection last week on Comedy Central's The Cobert Report.  

Shepard Fairey will also be premiering "Money," his newest music video for all-celebrity band, NASA, at the Chicago Motion Graphics Screening, Friday, Jan 23rd, 6:30pm at the Chicago Cultural Center.

The music video's director, Paul Griswold, will make a live appearance & speak about the video, earlier that day at the Chicago Motion Design Conference, 3pm at Columbia College's Ferguson Auditorium.

NASA stands for North America, South America, and includes musical legends such as David Byrne of the Talking Heads, Chuck D of Public Enemy, MIA, and more.

Both events are part of the Chicago MGFest, which begins January 20th in the Chicago Loop, the same day Obama is inaugurated in Washington DC.
