"Hope" Continues...

A few posts ago, I shared news that Shepard Fairey's original mixed media work Portrait of Barack Obama was going to be on display at the National Portrait Gallery. In anticipation of tomorrow's inauguration of our 44th President, take a look at the video my friend PR forwarded to me. It comes from Talking Points Memo and it has to do with a group exhibition called Manifest Hope at a gallery in Washington, D.C. in honor of Fairey's portrait and other Obama-related work, by him and other artists. It's interesting to hear what artists have to say about their own work, so check out the video below (if you can't see it, click here).
