Edited by Shepard Fairey and Jennifer Gross, the lavishly illustrated Art for Obama is more than just another coffee-table tome.
In the new book, Gross and Fairey — whose own iconic “Hope” poster ignited the art community’s involvement in the Obama campaign — detail the evolution of the Manifest Hope galleries at the DNC Convention in Denver and DC inaugural. The images range from portraiture to symbolic abstractions, representing the 150-plus artist/activists who joined forces to spread the word.
Update: We’re giving away five copies of the book to lucky Flavorpill readers. Leave a comment below with the name of your favorite Art for Obama contributor for a chance to enter.
