The God Bless Graffiti Coalition (GBGC) fought for the democratization of urban spaces and the decriminalization of graffiti practitioners in the early years of the 21st c.  Many works protest the political climate of the Bush era – including the anti-war movement – and document concerns of that time. Contains works in a variety of mediums – such as risographs, screen prints, and spray painted stencils – meant to be displayed in the public spaces of urban environments.  Artists include Shepard Fairey, Slack, Danny Tisdale, Dread Scott, and Havok.
