Celebs Customize Shepard Fairey for Marriage Equality


More than 80 entertainers and political figures including Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Mayor Gavin Newsom, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pine, Jessica Biel, Natalie Portman, Bradley Cooper, Lance Bass, Dave Matthews, Jared Leto, and Charlie Sheen have contributed signatures and/or enhancements to a set of "Defend Equality - Love Unites" original prints with a design by Shepard Fairey which became well-known during California's campaign against Proposition 8.

The project (undertaken in partnership with entertainment networking group HOMOtracker and its annual fundraiser ‘FallOut’) will go up for auction on November 10 on the website Charity Buzz and will benefit the grassroots marriage equality group FAIR. The group is also holding an event in West Hollywood on November 12 at which the prints will be on display.

The image above was enhanced by Virginia Madsen. Check out contributions from Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Marc Jacobs, Michael C Hall, and Cheyenne Jackson,

  2. I'm having trouble figuring out exactly what Michael C. Hall did with his. I see a handprint, I'm pretty sure, but what is it supposed to be?

  7. Will the posters that were augmented by the other celebrities also be displayed? I'm kinda curious to see what they all did.

    And I admit that I wish I was rich enough to bid on one of them...

  9. Ironic that Mr Fairey is still doing his day job with the Obama White House, innit?
