WASHINGTON — Artist Shepard Fairey will paper downtown D.C. Thursday with copies of a new work aimed at reigniting the push for gun control.

Fairey and hundreds of copies of a new version of his controversial “God Saves & Satan Invests” print focused on the National Rifle Association will be on hand at a rally sponsored by the progressive group Occupy The NRA. The orignal version of the work debuted last month and featured Fairey’s trademark “OBEY” where the letters “NRA” can be found on the new work.
