Inside Out Project holds final event of Jumpst(ART) Downtown summer campaign
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 closed out its Jumpst(ART) Downtown summer campaign Friday, Aug. 27, with a visit from the largest global participatory art project.
Attendees participated the project by having their photo taken from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at the Inside Out Project photo booth truck at Chase Tower at Water and Wisconsin.
Organizers say photo portraits are printed and later displayed on the plaza at the project site.
Portrait installation and live music at the event continued until 6:30 p.m.
The “Inside Out 11M” project is a partnership between French artist JR and Emerson Collective that aims to underscore public support for creating a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants contributing to America’s future, including Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, farmworkers, and other essential workers.
The visit is the second stop of a 16-city tour across the U.S., aimed at creating a portrait of America that highlights both our diversity and unity.
Over the past decade, more than 400-thousand people across more than 100 countries have participated in the "Inside Out" project.
