Catalogue Note

Marsha Williams fell in love with Shephard Fairey’s work long before his skyrocket to fame with the Obama hope emblem. Fairey’s work was important in the Williams’ home, becoming an agent for thought-provoking conversations with their children, who were young teenagers at the time. Marsha purchased Shephard Fairey’s Arab Woman for herself in 2007 and deeply cherished it. When she learned the artist was coming in town, she invited Fairey and his wife to dinner at the house. They remain close friends to this day.
