Tufts' Institute for Global Leaderships
24th Annual EPIIC
International Symposium on Global Cities is very proud to have
worked with Shepard Fairey in conjunction with his exhibition Supply
& Demand at
The Institute for Contemporary Art. As the ICA states on
their website: "Shepard Fairey has been creating art on the street
for 20 years — it is one of the cornerstones of his artistic practice.
In complement to the exhibition, Fairey has created several outdoor
projects throughout Boston and Cambridge." Tufts is one of sixteen
sites throughout the Boston area where the artist installed murals
in conjunction with his exhibition.
