(Excerpt from 'JR’s Photobooth in Times Square' posted by Lori Zimmer on Art Nerd on Apr. 9, 2013. Found here http://art-nerd.com/newyork/jrs-photobooth-in-times-square)
The Inside Out Times Square project introduces the self-portrait sharing art initiative to the metropolis hub of New York City.
What can be better than JR and a photobooth? As part of his Inside Out Project, the French artist is teaming up with Times Square Arts and bringing New Yorkers and tourists alike to take selfies right in Times Square. The black and white pics will then be combined with a backdrop designed by JR and printed out in 3′x4′ posters. How cool is that?? The project till run until May 10th.
Also, I really have to say, Times Square Arts has really been bringing it lately. Up until recently, I only associated it with tourists and crusty Elmo costumes, but they’ve really raised the bar and have me wondering what they will put up next.
