New York City art gallery Danziger Projects is celebrating inauguration day with the opening of “Can & Did,” an exhibition of graphics, art, and photography from the Obama campaign. On view through February 28, the show will feature the campaign’s greatest design hits—Shepard Fairey‘s viral poster art and the iconic “O” identity designed by Sol Sender, Andy Keene, and Amanda Gentry—as well as Pulitzer Prize winner David Turnley‘s photographs (including the one that Fairey riffed on), a splendid poster by graphic designer Lance Wyman, and artist Robert Indiana‘s HOPEful reworking of his iconic LOVE image. And what design exhibition would be complete without a few elegant design statements from the crew at Pentagram? “Can & Did” will include Michael Bierut‘s “The Fifty State Strategy” (pictured above) and a shot of a Paula Scher-designed “O” banner flapping triumphantly in the breeze. Annie Leibovitz, Mickalene Thomas, and DesignforObama.org also contributed Obama visuals to the show, which was assembled largely from the artists’ own limited proofs.
