Upper Playground supports Barack Obama
Fashion brand Upper Playground has announced their support of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in the race to the White House.
In an effort to secure Obama’s presidential bid, The 008, artist Shepard Fairey and Upper Playground are working together to create t-shirts of Fairey’s popular Obama campaign posters to be distributed throughout Texas prior to the primary on March 4, 2008.
In the past month, Fairey announced his endorsement of Obama by creating a limited run of posters adorned with a portrait of the Senator along with the words “Hope” and “Progress” that have become defining slogans of his campaign:
All proceeds from the sales of the Shepard Fairey/Upper Playground collaborative Obama t-shirt will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama’s bid for President.
