Shepard Fairey’s ubiquitous illustration of President-elect Barack Obama, seen in rallies, parties, shop windows and construction sites throughout the 2008 election season, has found a permanent home. The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., announced that it had acquired Mr. Fairey’s work for its collection.
