This "We the People" Artwork Is a Must-See
Jan 20, 2017
The artist behind the well-known Barack Obama "HOPE" poster, Shepard Fairey, has officially created new artwork as a part of a "We the People" movement which, according to Mashable, contains pieces from 18 artists.
In their efforts to eliminate "hate, fear and open racism," The Amplifier Foundation commissioned some of the movement's pieces that are "dedicated to igniting national dialogue about American identity and values through public art and story sharing."
Depicting women of various backgrounds, Fairey's artwork sends different messages of inclusivity to the people, championing the movement's mission.
I'd like to thank each and every one of you who has helped support the #WeThePeople campaign so far. At this point, we've raised over $950,000 thanks to the interest and generosity of all of you! If you haven't already pledged, the campaign's Kickstarter is open for another 49 hours so there's still time to get involved! Tomorrow morning at 10AM (PST), all three of my 18 x 24" screen prints will be available to purchase on the @amplifierfoundation's Kickstarter page (link in bio). Prints are available to purchase individually ($100) and as a set ($280). Help us continue to share this amazing effort and take this campaign to the next level! #ProtectEachOther
