Inside Out Project
Friday, August 27, from 10 AM - 6:30 PM
Chase Tower at Water & Wisconsin
After winning the TED Prize in 2011, French-artist JR launched the Inside Out Project. Using his own artistic practice as inspiration, this participatory platform helps individuals and communities to make a statement by displaying large-scale black and white portraits in public spaces. Through their "Actions," communities around the world have sparked collaborations and conversations.
Over the past decade, more than 400,000 people spanning across 138 countries have participated in the Inside Out Project. The project has reached all continents, with over 2,000 actions created. Click here to learn more about this global public art project.
The Milwaukee community is invited to participate in the project on Friday, August 27, from 10 AM - 4 PM, by having their portrait taken, printed and installed on the plaza outside of Chase Tower at Water & Wisconsin, and on the adjacent RiverWalk.
