Shepard Fairey Art Supports Food Banks

By Kasandra Gunter Robinson March 30, 2010

Be on the lookout for Hunger Awareness billboards in the D.C. metro area featuring art by Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the red, white and blue print of President Barack Obama while he was running for office.

Fairey, a renowned contemporary artist has created an original piece of art (featuring his daughter) for Feeding America to help raise awareness of the growing issue of hunger in America.  A member of Feeding America’s Entertainment Council, Mr. Fairey in partnership with Feeding America and Ad Council is launching this art as an outdoor public service advertisement campaign that publicizes local food banks to be posted throughout the United States.
