Shepard Fairey decorates the Holy City

College Lodge, Calhoun St., Charleston, S.C.
Charleston artist Shepard Fairey is leaving his mark in an exciting way and I caught a few of the pieces of art and then happened on him in action. He was giving a talk at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art  yesterday and then joined his team to finish the piece on King St. Photographer Bad Jon has a terrific series of the work being put up.

So far I've seen the one on College Lodge, on top of the Francis Marion Hotel and the one below on Groucho's Deli on King St. I understand there is another up by Butcher & Bee. I am loving this!

John C. Calhoun is very, very puzzled!

I love it, love it, love it. Charleston needed some dramatic art.

I didn't know Shepard Fairey is from Charleston. I loved seeing his work in Boston!

He is! I love what he has done for us. His father is a physician in Charleston.
