To protest Donald Trump’s inauguration, Shepard Fairey has designed a collection of posters that includes teams he considers historically marginalized. The “We the Folks” collection is the work of Fairey — with contributions from artists Jessica Sabogal and Ernesto Yerena — and it has raised a number of hundred thousand to buy full-page advertisements with the posters within the Washington Put up to make an announcement on Inauguration Day.
Fairey is reportedly collaborating with the Amplifier Foundation, a nonprofit that helps grassroots actions and which commissioned the undertaking. The plan: purchase full-page advertisements within the newspaper that characteristic the photographs, and encourage individuals to tear them out and maintain them as placards or posters. Fairey is, in fact, well-known for his 2008 Obama Hope poster.
