American Civics

Famed street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey partnered with the estate of rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall to create fine art prints from Marshall’s original photographs. Each piece as crafted by Fairey is named after a civic-engagement topic and is based on an original photo taken by Marshall. The display includes five original photographs by Marshall and the five prints created by Fairey.

Location: Second Floor, Room 318 in the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building (914 Capitol Mall, Sacramento)
