Shepard and Amanda Fairey Unveil “Artists Band Together” Initiative to Benefit Voter Registration
The line of bandanas designed by world-class artists goes on sale today on eBay.
Today, the first of two lines of bandanas designed by world-class artists—including Shepard Fairey, Jenny Holzer, and Umar Rashid—goes on sale to benefit various voter registration initiatives. The bandanas, selling for $35 each on eBay, were commissioned by Shepard and his wife Amanda, as well as Nora Halpern, Asti Hustvedt, Jill Goldman, and Vicki Kennedy for a project called Artists Band Together.
“I believe in the Artists Band Together project because I think we all can make the country better, and that art and the humanitarian spirit of artists can play a valuable role in doing so,” Shepard said in a press release this morning. “This project embraces the principles of democracy by making art accessible through the bandanas, while also providing support to the grassroots voting initiatives of the organizations benefiting from the profits—Rise, Mijente, and Woke Vote. The caliber of artists involved is inspiring, and I believe in the story behind each work of art. I think that everyone from collectors to activists will be embracing these as collectable symbols of democracy at this historic moment.”
Available now on ABT’s eBay page, the collection will be followed by a second wave of new designs dropping September 1. See all the designs below.
