Blondie Guitarist Chris Stein to Host Public Discussion with Artist Shepard Fairey in NYC this Friday
September 15, 2015
Fairey, who is perhaps best known as the creator for Barack Obama’s iconic “Hope” slogan during his 2008 presidential run, will talk to Stein in front of a public audience at the NeueHouse in Manhattan in promotion of his new work, Covert to Overt: The Under|Overground Art of Shepard Fairey. As the bill for the show reads, Fairey’s “Hope” work is widely considered the most prominent American sign since Uncle Sam.
Fans hoping to attend can RSVP at NeueHouse.com and join the conversation by tweeting @NeueHouse or @OBEYGIANT. As for Blondie’s plans, they’ll likely hit the studio sometime next year following 2014’s Ghosts of Download, which was featured in the two-disc Blondie 4(0) Ever compilation.
