Artists Take on Education Reform
Artists like Shepard Fairey, Michel Gondry, Swoon, WK Interact, FAILE, Maya Hayuk, Ken Swift (Rock Steady Crew), and Marc Ecko participated in Re:Form School, and all the proceeds from the sales of their work will go to The Urban Arts Partnership.
Yosi Sergant, the organizer’s event, explained the event this way:
“Throughout history artists have lent their creative expression to issues of culture & politics. They combine innovation with art’s greatest strength – the ability to transcend boundaries and make an impact, while not relying solely on language. Artists can convene conversations otherwise left untouched with the stroke of a pen or the drag of a bow.”
Check out some of the art that came out of the event. I especially love this one, from artist Aaron Axelrod.
