DFW Exhibition: PHENOMENON featuring Shepard Fairey

PHENOMENON featuring SHEPARD FAIREY, Saturday 4 February 21.00 – 22.00 (9.00 pm – midnight)

Dallas Contemporary has invited Los Angeles based street artist SHEPARD FAIREY to create more than 12 murals throughout the city with a focus on West Dallas. Known for his iconic designed President Obama HOPE poster, Fairey has worked as an artist creating works on the streets and globally in public spaces using posters, stickers, wheat paste and painted murals.

In celebration of the mural project, Dallas Contemporary will host the first annual PHENOMENON, an over-the-top, neon-inspired dance party. Fairey, a world-toured DJ, will provide the music for guests in the Dallas Contemporary galleries, just days after completing his murals.

Dallas Contemporary invites you to be part of this year’s PHENOMENON: a vibrant commencement to Shepard Fairey’s remarkable February 2012 exhibition. Event co-chairs Meghan Looney, Bradley Agather and Hannah Hoffman promise an unforgettable celebration that will leave guests in awe. The neon-themed dance extravaganza with live DJ’d music by Shephard Fairey will take place just hours after the completion of the artist’s citywide mural project. A selection of Dallas’s best and favorite food trucks will be pulled-up to serve guests, and the Shepard Fairey-OBEY pop-up shop will be on site featuring signed posters, books and OBEY clothing items. Join Dallas Contemporary in welcoming the phenomenal Shepard Fairey to Dallas.

PHENOMENON supports Dallas Contemporary exhibition and learning programs.
