 Shepard Fairey

Shepard Fairey

The Amplifier Foundation commissions artists in nation-wide fight against hate, fear, racism and more.

Self-described as 'an art machine for social change,' the foundation has commissioned over 18 artists to collaborate on a number of projects and campaigns aimed at supporting the cultural movements of our time.

Armed with a reputable staff and expanding list of partners, the foundation has taken on a wide range of social issues aimed at leveraging the work of artists to inspire action by the masses.

Their mission:

"WE ARE A VISUAL MEDIA EXPERIMENT DEDICATED TO AMPLIFYING THE VOICES OF GRASSROOTS MOVEMENTS THROUGH ART AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. WE DO THIS BY FUNDING COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN THOSE MOVEMENTS AND CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS SO THAT THEIR MESSAGES CAN REACH A WIDER AUDIENCE."
