Following Fairey Back to the CAC

In April I asked if the Contemporary Art Center was on the wrong side of art when they included Shepard Fairey in this year's exhibition season. The CAC responded quickly siding with the importance of presenting "different viewpoints and opinions."

As Fairey celebrates with Warhol, the AP reported the artist's attorney is admitting Fairey lied about which photo he used for his "Hope" poster and deleted images to conceal his mistake.

As with many artists who exhibit or work in Greater Cincinnati, I encourage you to continue to follow Fairey as he returns for a second visit to the CAC in February 2010.
