Screening of "Obey Giant"
Join us for a screening of “Obey Giant,” a documentary profiling the life and career of Shepard Fairey – street artist, illustrator, graphic designer, activist, and founder of OBEY Clothing. The film follows his roots in punk rock and skateboarding to his creation of the iconic “Obama HOPE” poster and the controversy that surrounds it.
The film screening is part of a week-long celebration called Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans in Boston from July 19 to 26. Fairey will be painting an ocean-inspired mural on the side of the New England Aquarium’s Simons Theatre as part of the event, and the public is invited to watch him and his team from Central Wharf Plaza before the film screening.
