Shepard Fairey – Chicago

Best known in Chicago for his Barack Obama “Hope” poster in 2008, artist Shepard Fairey has left his mark on our lakefront.

Under Lake Shore Drive, at the Viaduct for Grand Ave. he created a 130 by 10 feet “Obey” mural featuring record album-like cover works.

As part of the Navy Pier Walk 2011 art exhibition, which is billed as the largest outdoor installation of its kind in the country (officially opens July 1), his work will remain up through October.
