Shepard Fairey and Obey Team Up with Inmates and MC5

posted by Alex August 8, 2012

We all have our opinions on Shepard Fairey and Obey, but let’s put that aside for a few minutes and check out how they are teaming up with inmates and Wayne Kramer of MC5. Implemented as a program that lets inmates pursue their musical interests as a kind of rehabilitation, the Jail Guitar Doors USA project is a non-profit charity aimed at easing the transitions of inmates back to the outside world. Kramer was once incarcerated and spoke about his own experiences leading up to jail time and how music personally helped him turn his life around. Check out the interview after the jump!
