Shepard Fairey comes to town, like Santa

At the same time of year as Santa, Charleston native Shepard Fairey comes to town, and sometimes brings us gifts, like Santa, usually while we are sleeping.  This year’s amazing gift to the Cannonborough Elliotborough community is the mural on the facade of 103 Spring St.  If you haven’t noticed it yet, it is worth the drive down Spring St, in downtown Charleston Sc.  Take it slow and look to your left at the big oak tree across from Sires St.
