My friends Fritz Klaetke, of the design firm, Visual Dialogue, and Susan Battista, of marketing firm Topic 101, had their corner townhouse and offices approvingly tagged by propaganda artist Shepard Fairey, of Obey. Today, February 6, 2009, Fairey is honored with a one-man-show at the Boston ICA. Known, of course, for his iconic Obama HOPE image his opening has received some controversy about image appropriation. UPDATE: Due to vandals, “neighborly” disgust, tourists and “collectors” this artwork was destroyed. Click here to see the art being reapplied. To see a video of the kids from my group at the after-school program I volunteer with  view and discuss the artwork, Click here.
