Shepard Fairey - She's Not A Planet She's One Of Us - Print Release and details

Wooster Street Social Club and The CityKids Foundation will release “She’s Not A Planet, She  is One of Us” a print by  Shepard Fairey on Saturday, July 9th at 3pm at the Wooster Street Social Club, located at 43 Wooster Street, New York.

This print pays homage to one of the twelve panels created for the “A Positive Thought Cannot Be Denied” project, which was done in May of 2010, with Shepard Fairey and over 100 teens from CityKids. The collaboration resulted in twelve 8 x 4 foot panels that address issues in education, environmental sustainability, teen violence, and social justice.

These images are arguably some of Fairey’s strongest recent work and are a clear reflection of the inspiration that he found in the thoughts and opinions of these young adults.

“Art is one of the most powerful ways for young people to make their voices heard on issues affecting their lives,” said Fairey. “Working with such talented youths has been an honor and a revelation, and I’m proud to be part of a project that shines a much-deserved spotlight on these creative, outspoken and insightful kids.”

The release of this print will give people the opportunity to support an amazing foundation that provides intercity youth a safe recreational space for artistic, musical, and community-oriented pursuits.

The print is a signed limited edition of 450 with proceeds going to benefit the CityKids Foundation. Wooster Street Social Club has been given 300 prints to release in conjunction with the CityKids Foundation; 100 of which are to be released online at:

and the remaining 200 will be available at Wooster Street Social Club for $150.00.

In addition to the print release, the twelve panels will be on display for a special viewing from July 6th – 18th, 2011.
