JR Takes Over Houston Street
Kenny Scharf's mural on the corner of Houston and Bowery in lower Manhattan was replaced by "Lakota, North Dakota," a piece from JR's Inside Out Project, which he created with the $100,000 TED prize he received to carry out his wish to "turn the world inside out" with art. Inside Out builds on the idea behind JR's earlier projects that by exposing people to art, he can change the way they think about the world and make it more collaborative. At the Inside Out Project's website, anyone can upload a black and white photograph and the team will mail the uploader an enormous print to paste in his or her neighborhood - how awesome is that?
The image now on Houston is part of "Lakota, North Dakota," a series that highlights the Standing Rock and Pineridge Native Reservations, which are drastically impoverished and often overlooked. I love this combination of beauty and political poignancy, and can't wait to see more of this project.
