Pictures of Shepard Fairey X Miami City Ballet Collaboration
Street artist Shepard Fairey has teamed up with Miami City Ballet and choreographer Justin Peck. Shepard Fairey is best known for his iconic “Hope” poster for Obama’s 2008 campaign and in Miami for his memorial mural of Tony Goldman in Wynwood.Gene Schiavone. Now he is excited to contribute his artistic urban touch to the Miami performing arts as his recent words about the show reveals.
“The Miami City Ballet opens today with Justin Peck’s Heatscape featuring my set design. I’m a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg who collaborated with Merce Cunningham, so the idea of collaborating with a choreographer in the same vein appealed to me. Beyond the historical association I mentioned, I’m a big fan of putting my work in front of people using unexpected platforms. The cross-pollination that can happen between the ballet and street art audiences is exciting to me. If you’re in the Miami area be sure to check out the show!” – Shepard
