Global Art Initiative, INSIDE OUT, Promotes Peace In Boston!

"I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we'll turn the world... inside out."-JR (Creator of the INSIDE OUT project)

Winning the 2011 TED prize, visiting over 124 countries and territories with more than 234,000 participants, the INSIDE OUT project has the potential to change the world. This week, INSIDE OUT made a stop in Boston! They set up their photo booth truck in various locations and took portrait photos of over 70 pedestrians. Boston is a prime location for this project for many reasons but mainly because our community is still healing from the marathon tragedy. Over 50 large-format portraits of residents were pasted on the Dudley branch of the Boston Public Library. Be sure to look for more INSIDE OUT locations in the upcoming weeks, and take a moment to think about global change. Big thanks to INSIDE OUT!
