Oh, my gosh. Rocky, check this out! A few degrees of separation!
This Friday, February 13, Rocky Vertone opens his new Full Circle Frameworks gallery space with a show of works by Scott Sears. Kickoff is 5:30 pm, and the place is 335 N. Glenwood, in Jackson.
BUT, Sears’ publicity poster looks an awful lot like the now famous Obama “Hope” poster. HOPE is the word, and a hep cat with Mohawk hair is the man. I’ll have to see the work up close to tell you whether or not this is Sears’ vision of Mohawk Obama.
This is relevant because……..
WOW!!! BREAKING NEWS!!! Obama “Hope” artist arrested!!
The Associated Press has accused artist Shepard Fairey of copyright infringement, saying the poster image was based on one of its photos, taken in April 2006 by Manny Garcia on assignment for the AP at the National Press Club in Washington.
Wow, now Fairey is under arrest, as of 30 minutes ago! Ok, putting this up right now!
