Shepard Fairey's portrait of television titan and cultural icon Norman Lear was created as a tribute by Shepard Fairey after Norman's passing in late 2023. His legacy lives on through this signed limited edition print and the work we will do together for the coming decades. This screen print on heavy cream Speckletone paper is 18 x 24 inches, signed and unframed, and numbered at an edition of 500.

Artist statement: This portrait is a celebration of PFAW founder Norman Lear, whose lifetime of work as a writer, producer, activist, and creator of many beloved and socially minded TV shows such as “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons” has profoundly impacted me along with millions of others. I met Norman a few times through People For the American Way, and he was charming, intelligent, funny, and extremely motivated to cultivate justice and compassion through his TV shows and his activism. Norman Lear embodied everything I admire as an artist/activist/citizen. I see this image of Norman in his trademark, Fedora, as tipping his hat to democracy and the potential of robust civic participation to shape a more just America. The American flag, with different identities and concepts within each star, represents Norman’s big tent approach to the “American Way,” as he always wanted to broaden the coalition for progress.
