On the Seafront of Naples, Inside Out, JR's global work of art is inaugurated

For the Sky Arte Festival, Inside Out, the large installation by street artist JR, opens on the Lungomare di Napoli.

[alert type=”info” close=”false”] The weather didn't help JR's public art installation. The posters were supposed to remain for 10 days, but most will be removed on the night of the 7th and 8th. You will therefore have until the evening of the 7th to see the work in its entirety![/alert]
