VIDEO: JR's "Inside Out" Takes Over Times Square
A project that has spanned the globe is now taking over parts of New York City. With the help of Times Square Arts, the public arts program of the Times Square Alliance, French artist JR is printing out large-scale portraits and plastering them on the sidewalk as part of Inside Out New York City. Until May 10th, visitors can have their portraits snapped in a mobile photo booth in Times Square, home to the world's first photo booth in 1926, organizers note. Inside Out, an ongoing participatory multimedia art project, is also making its way across the five boroughs, snapping shots of New Yorkers in communities hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. The project coincides with the world premiere of the HBO Documentary "INSIDE OUT: The People's Art Project," at the TriBeCa Film Festival.
