Fairey Donates $60K to RISD Scholars Fund

June 10, 2015

Rhode Island School of Design alum Shepard Fairey has recently made a generous contribution of $60,000 to the school's Scholars fund. "Given the intense workload, there's enough stress without having to worry about making ends meet. I'd like to see people thrive at RISD based on talent and work ethic as opposed to financial resources," says the artist.
