Shepard Fairey Hits the CAC?

As the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) prepares for next Tuesday's announcement of its 2009-10 season, there is indication it will be bringing the big, nationally reviewed Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand show here from Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). The first museum retrospective for the popular and controversial street artist, Supply and Demand looks at his career up to his creation of the iconic Obama silk-screen posters, depicting the then-presidential candidate, head slightly and nobly uplifted, above the words "Progress" and "Hope."—-

In its press release for Tuesday's presentation, the CAC included an image of Fairey's "Obey Andy Warhol" stencil, underneath saying, "Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand Winter Season." This year, the CAC brought in the ICA's Tara Donovan show (it's up through May 3), and it's proven to be one of the center's most popular in quite some time.
