AO On Site – New York: JR ‘Inside Out Project’ at Mulberry and Prince in Manhattan, April 23, 2012

With a “kind of secret” French glue, JR and assistants pasted up a 65-foot mural yesterday in the Soho area of Manhattan at the north west corner of Mulberry and Prince streets. The work is part of the Inside Out Project, JR’s TED-awarded “One Wish to Change the World.” Inside Out is an open invite to submit black and white photographic portraits which are then blown up to various poster sizes and returned to be placed wherever the owner chooses. The image in Soho—with no tear-down date as of yet—is part of the North Dakota Native American project, submitted by Brandon Many Ribs, according to a Facebook post.
