JR – More Murals On Grand Street + Wooster Street | Behind The Scene

By - June 27th, 2011

While most people are clamoring over street artist JR‘s newest mural on the Houston Street (and Bowery) wall, the 2011 TED Prize winner and his band of associates kept busy with 2 additional murals. On the juncture of Grand and Wooster, the murals are on 2 walls diagonally across from one another, near vicinities of where Jeffery Deitch’s two Deitch Projects galleries used to be. Both are tributes from JR’s Native American Standing Rock Nation series, works on both started around midnight and ended 8 am. Sadly with some many real estate developments creeping up, this might be one of the few large scale murals to be in the SoHo neighborhood. Let’s hope that will not be the case for the time being. via: Martha Cooper
