"Shepard Fairey is as much a music fan as he is an artist, and his piece captures the tradition and timelessness of the GRAMMYs, while bringing a fresh and contemporary perspective to represent our 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "The Academy is always looking for ways to engage the creative community, and commissioning the official GRAMMY show art is always a great opportunity to recognize how all creativity intersects."

The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Jan. 31, 2010 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, and will be broadcast live on the CBS at 8/7c.
