Benjamin has signed an art print from the Shepard Fairey “Love Unites” Auction.
The proceeds go to FAIR (Freedom Action Inclusion Rights), a grassroots organization started by Shepard Fairey, the celebrated street artist and creator of the now ubiquitous Obama HOPE image, to raise funds and awareness for marriage equality and LGBT rights. Fairey designed these pieces called ‘DEFEND EQUALITY LOVE UNITES’, which has become a unifying symbol of the post-Proposition 8 struggle for marriage equality.
FAIR has reached out to celebrities and notable supporters of marriage equality to personalize a series of poster size prints, provided directly from Shepard Fairey from his personal press during the first print run. These unique prints, each combining Shepard’s orginal image with the artistic touch of a an actor, filmmaker, artist, or politician, will be unveiled around the first anniversary of the passage of Proposition 8 in California, and are exclusively available for auction on Charitybuzz.com.
