from street art to the smithsonian

Here's a great overview (with links to plenty of images) of the Manifest Hope art show that was on display in Washington DC earlier this week.

What's more impressive is that artist Shepard Fairey put on a suit and tie, to see his now iconic work put into the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Cleans up nice.

It's easy to hate on this guy, but that's only 'cause I'm jealous. He did what most creatives would want to do...made a difference, got recognized for it.

I'm a pretty big Shepard fan, and totally agree.

I like the fact that he never went to the campaign heads to work with them--he just did it. That's a very important lesson for many brands out there.
