HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
Whether in litigation over his Obama Hope poster or showing his work on Houston and Bowery, artist Shepard Fairey still found time in his busy schedule to help local kids create some street art of their own. Back in May, Fairey, along with more than a hundred youths from CityKids, a New York nonprofit, created A Positive Thought Cannot Be Denied, a mural that incorporates Faireys own street-art aesthetic and iconic images to express the youths perspectives on social-justice issues such as teen violence, the environment, and education. The mural, displayed in a series of 8-by-11-foot panels, will be unveiled today in the World Financial Center Courtyard Gallery.
