‘Inside Out’ art project puts murals of residents’ faces onto public buildings
The Boston Globe - 10/07/2015
Alejandra Durban, 19, a junior at Northeastern University, read about the project in Roxbury and attended the TED talk by JR.
“It invites everyone to participate in it. It’s not something where you are outside of the project,” Durban said. “It has so many things tying it to the community.”
For C.D. Storm, the mural and the event took on a different meaning. It offered a reprieve from the crime that sometimes overshadows the vibrant neighborhood, he said.
“It shows solidarity,” he said. “And that with all the mess and the crime and the drugs that’s going on, there are still good people who want to come together and see good things happen.”
