Wanted…for all the wrong reasons…in Detroit of all places.


Shepard Fairey is wanted by Detroit police for creating street art on public buildings in their city.  IMO a simple “thank you” would suffice instead of a felony warrant. Doesn’t City Hall realize that tourists might actually be interested in visiting their (fair?) city to see this art? No, I guess not.  The Anti-Vandalism crew is likely whitewashing it all away as we speak…

That’s right.  Fairey was the guy who designed the popular Obama poster, among many other fine artworks.

  1. I wonder what they would do if banksy went there, one of his pieces might get them out of debt.
