The Peace Corps has released a commemorative print by prominent artist Shepard Fairey in commemoration of the agency's 50th anniversary. The print is based on a 2009 photograph of a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal, and is symbolic of the work of more than 200,000 Peace Corps volunteers who have served in 139 countries since 1961.

"I'm inspired by the work of Peace Corps volunteers around the world. Volunteers share their creativity and compassion with their local communities," said Shepard Fairey. "I hope this poster inspires the next generation of volunteers." Fairey's sister served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Togo.
