Art and freedom go hand in hand, and the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center is celebrating that happy coupling this month with F.A.I.R.: Art of Action. Part of LGBT Pride Month, Art of Action is being hosted by the Gay and Lesbian Center along with gay rights group F.A.I.R. (Freedom Action Inclusion Rights). It will feature an original work by Shepard Fairey, as well as prints of Fairey's LOVE UNITES poster that have been customized by celebs.

The show will be held at the center's Advocate & Gochis Galleries in Hollywood, and funds raised will go towards services provided by the center, including physical and mental health care.

Stars that put their stamp on LOVE UNITES prints, which will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit, include Antonio Villaraigosa, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts and Tobey Maguire.

The exhibit will be free and open to the public. Opening night is June 9, with a reception from 7-9 pm.
