We’ve all seen street artist Shepard Fairey’s portrait of President Barack Obama. The same portrait was used as the front cover of Time and Esquire magazines — we call that success.

Shepard’s works will be on display at the ICA starting next Friday — the exhibit is called “Shepard Fairey: Supply & Demand.” Short notice, but don’t panic: his work will be up through mid-August.

And, circle Feb. 12 in your planners. At noon that day, curator Pedro Alonzo will share his experiences working with Fairey. The event is free with museum admission, but space is limited.

Finally, before heading out to the ICA, read this inspiring story about Fairey by the Globe’s own Geoff Edgers.
