Shepard Fairey's anti-Islamaphobia poster from Saturday's Women’s March

Shepard Fairey releases ‘We the People’ series to protest President Trump
In the weeks leading up to the inauguration, the art world organized its resistance. Art spaces around the country responded to the #J20 call to stop operations on January 20 to “combat the normalization of Trumpism.” Shepard Fairey designed a new series of hopeful posters for inauguration weekend that did not feature the image of the president this time around. The series was commissioned by non-profit organization the Amplifier Foundation. In a day of protest on Saturday, January 21, hundreds of thousands of women gathered in Washington, DC, to object to the agenda of President Donald Trump. [link]
