The LA Fund and Artist Shepard Fairey Call for LAUSD Student Submissions for “Arts Matter” campaign.

LAUSD students will have the opportunity to use their imagination and express themselves through the Los Angeles Fund for Education’s call for student ideas titled, “Imagine your life without limits, what would you create?”

LAUSD students are encouraged to answer this question using their imagination and self-expression. The LA Fund is asking for student to submit their ideas by April 26.

Student submissions will be used to inspire the final artwork created by world-renowned artist Shepard Fairey, best known for his 2008 presidential election Barack Obama “Hope” Poster. Fairey’s iconic artwork has been showcased on the cover of Time Magazine as well as on album covers of famous music recording artists such as the Black Eyed Peas. His work is currently included in collections at The Smithsonian, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The final artwork will be displayed on LA Metro buses and billboards throughout the month of July.

LAUSD is a proud partner with the Los Angeles Fund for Education. This is the third installment of the LA Fund’s “Arts Matter” campaign, designed to increase the number of arts programs in our schools.
