Meet Shepard Fairey

In the past year, my friend Adam Tracy and I have gotten to meet two of our favorite artists. Last October we got to chill with Chuck Close at his studio on Bond Street. This time, we got to watch Shepard Fairey work on the new mural at Bowery and Houston, then we got to meet him at the opening of his show at Deitch Projects, and then we kicked it at his after party in Chinatown. We also snagged a couple of signed prints.

And some more amazing news. When Adam asked Shep if he was planning to return to Providence anytime soon, he said that he'd be there in August to work on a mural with AS220. Adam's gonna try to get involved with the project somehow. What a weekend.
