ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG FOUNDATION INAUGURATES THE ARTIST AS ACTIVIST PRINT PROJECT

FOUNDATION SELECTS COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS AS THE BENEFICIARY AND SHEPARD FAIREY AS THE "ARTIST AS ACTIVIST" FOR PILOT YEAR OF THIS NEW PROJECT

New York, NY, October 28: The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation is pleased to announce the inauguration of its Artist as Activist print project, championing Rauschenberg's legacy of using art as a vehicle for change. In carrying forward his tradition, the Foundation has chosen the Coalition for the Homeless as beneficiary for the pilot year of the project. Together, the Foundation and the Coalition have selected artist Shepard Fairey as this year's "Artist as Activist." A limited edition of 100 signed prints commissioned from Fairey will be made available for sale through Artnet Auctions, with all proceeds going to support the Coalition.

"Shepard Fairey embodies Robert Rauschenberg's belief that 'Art can change the world,'" said Christy MacLear, Executive Director of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. "Not only does Shepard already have a record as an artist activist, which we wanted to highlight and celebrate, but he also credits Rauschenberg as a major influence, making our choice a simple one."
