Shepard Fairey to create "special project" at Art Chicago

Art Chicago announced last week that Shepard Fairey, street artist and creator of the iconic HOPE poster for Barack Obama's 2008 campaign, both seen below, will show at Art Chicago (4/29-5/2) and creating a special installation for it.

Unfortunately I don't know what Fairey will come up with, the press release for the event only describes it as "a special project space in partnership with exhibitor Robert Berman Gallery."

And again there will be sculpture installed outside of the Merchandise Mart, the site of the event, with 16 pieces planned to be on view.
