AM brings you a preview from the ever busy set up at the “pop-up” Manifest Hope gallery at the Nation’s capital.Â Tomorrow is almost here, and the gallery is set to open at 10 am for all the people who are in town to see the inauguration.Â Manifest Hope will be opened during MLK weekend and but will be closed on Tuesday to observe the Presidential inauguration.
Shepard Fairey and Ron English arrived today to meet and greet the numerous press that were in town for the week.Â As we’ve previous reported (Setup and Process), the workers are feverishly trying to finish up the final touches on the installations and getting the gallery looking tip top. If you can make it out here, it will totally be worth it becasue the gallery space is phenomenal and the installations are mind boggling!

You can see a sneak peek of the exhibits AND a very special surprise from Shepard after the jump!
Shepard and Manifest Hope has a special treat for those that are attending the show. Shepard will be releasing a very limited quantity (150)Â of the “Hope” Obama paster… with one twist… He is signing them with an “09” in recognition of the Inauguration. So be quick and maybe you’ll get lucky!
As usual… Shepard always does a little treat for AM readers… he signed a few Obama “Progress” Sticker with an ’09’ just for this show. How do you win one? Just post a comment below by Noon on Sunday and we’ll select 2 winners randomly! (Congratulations Brett and Evil Choy who are our winners!)
