Day 65 ~ Sunday Hop of the Week ~ Shepard Fairey and Richard Avedon

Great day on Tuesday! My friend, Lisa has a knack for catching the last day of many shows in NYC. Lisa did a great job making sure we would be able to make this show! We were lucky to see Shepard Fairey's show - "Harmony and Discord" at Pace Prints on the second to last day. Even though you may think you don't know Shepard Fairey - you do. While he was completing his BFA at RISD, he created the Andre the Giant Posse sticker which was a street art phenomenon. According to Pace Prints, "His work has evolved into an acclaimed body of art which includes the 2008 "Hope" portrait of Barack Obama which can be found in the Smithonian's National Portrait gallery."

Cutting it close - so thanks Lisa for remembering!

The show is now closed, but here at some shots that will
give you an idea of how great it was!

And, then we headed to Richard Avedon, at Gargosian Gallery.
 A cavernous space with immense mural portraits-
all I can say is - go see it!
The show has been extended until July 27, 2012...
go see it before the last day!
