Artist/designer Shepard Fairey is in D.C. this week and a number of Obama HOPE images and OBEY Giants have consequently appeared all over the city. Friday night Mr. Obey sat on a panel with Al Farrow at the Corcoran for a nice presentation on art with social conscience. Tonight their show at Irvine Contemporary opened. I skipped the opening and instead rested after a long day of biking in search of as many Fairey works as I could possibly find. It was a great day – I saw Chinatown, Shaw, U St., Mt. Pleasant, ran into the Prince of Petworth, made sure there wasnt an Obama pasted onto the White House, and went on a wild goose chase all the way up to Takoma Park (for those of you on the hunt, there is not a Fairey in Takoma at Vision Lighting as reported. While there is an image of Obama on the warehouse, it is NOT a Fairey). I scaled fences, laid in the dirt, and even climbed the roof of the Logan Circle Whole Foods to get shots. It’d be great to find more, so if you spot one please share the address! Click on the individual images for their location.
