The award-winning artist JR brought the Inside Out Dreamers project to ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station. The community participated in this interactive installation for 2 days in October.
On Monday, October, 30 and Tuesday, October 31, Inside Out/Dreamers traveled to ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station for an interactive art installation. This is part of a nationwide, participatory art initiative – the Inside Out Project – launched by award-winning French artist JR to create a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike. ARTS DISTRICT is the first California stop for the project.
During this stop, Inside Out Dreamers brought the JR Photo Truck to Liberty Station to give individuals an opportunity to take their picture and use art as an expression of standing in solidarity with Dreamers. These large 3 foot by 4 foot black and white portraits have been pasted to the walls of an ARTS DISTRICT building and are meant to remind the community of the real, human stories and faces behind the national debate surrounding Dreamers.

The images will remain on the un-renovated former Navy Base Exchange building at the ARTS DISTRICT for a limited time.
