When Shepard Fairey was in New York City last spring for his solo exhibit at Deitch Projects, he collaborated with Manhattan teens on a huge mural. Panels from this mural are currently on exhibit at Chelsea’s Icosahedron Gallery at 606 W. 26th Street. An April 28th auction is planned with all proceeds going to the non-profit youth organization, CityKids Foundation. I stopped by earlier this week and liked what I saw, as the works exude an arresting raw energy and spirit.
