JR In The Bronx

June 27, 2011

We aren’t huge fans of ‘street-art’ but JR is one of those exceptions….

He recently did some work in the Bronx for theBronx’s Hunts Point Alliance for Children to present “Through A Mother’s Eyes,” a community art project that involves members of the neighborhood, through images taken by and of Hunts Point residents themselves. With the areas physical structures being plastered with the people who live amongst them, the focus of the project is “community art” in its truest sense.
JR, this year’s TED prize winner, also recently replaced Kenny Scharf’s mural on Houston, wheatpasted stoops across Park Slope, and his Lakota project can be seen all over Soho as part of Inside Out, a massive participatory art project that “transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work.”
