I know that after watching the video that Anne sent to me through email ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PAy1zBtTbw&feature=player_embedded) I was left truly inspired. JR works with the idea that art is able to make a difference. To me this has to be the most powerful realization any artist can make. That what they make, what they are creating can help to break down barriers, make people think, and make the differences between people smaller.
We just had the exhibition for the West Wall temporary mural and there was a great turn out. The mural was put onto the Warehouse 21 wall with wheat paste and a little trial and error. This project has also gotten a great amount of press and I wanted to share the links with everyone :)
