Obama Artist Gets Smithsonian Space

Artist Shepard Fairey became a pop/political culture phenomenon when his artwork titled, 'Barack Obama,' became the central portrait image for the Obama campaign. And now, the mixed media stenciled collage has a new gig; hanging in the Smithsonian.

Today, the portrait was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

It was previously distributed as a limited-edition print and as a free download.
