Prestigious cities to art, Washington D.C., London, England, New York City, and Los Angeles house work by one of today’s most influential street artists, Shepard Fairey. Detroit is now one of those artful cities added to his list.

Along with the largely talked about mural on the back of the Compuware Building that is now complete, an exhibition at Library Street Collective called PRINTED MATTERS: Creation & Destruction features his latest collection opens tonight at 6 p.m.

Fairey is returning to Detroit for the first time in over a decade. Printed Matters is a continuous series of exhibitions, which focuses on the importance of printed material in Fairey’s art. Each exhibition highlights this significance by incorporating a variety of Shepard’s printed material, including serigraphs on paper, editions on wood, editions on metal, and fine art collage.

The Library Street Collective is at 1260 Library Street in Detroit.
