Join us for the unveiling of 35 paper lanterns on April 6th at 12:30 pm on Deaderick St. in Nashville!
NASHVILLIANS = STREET ART
We have partnered with the Tennessee State Museum to line the streets of Nashville with YOUR portraits for a large scale temporary street art project. Yes, we are turning amazing Nashvillians into art!!
We want to line Deaderick Street with paper lanterns and “illuminate” our citizens during the TEDxNashville event on April 6th, at the TPAC.
There will be a solor powered light within each of the 3′ x 4.5′ black and white portrait cubes, to make for a magical April Art Crawl featuring the amazing individuals that make our city great! Join us with your support to help fund the materials and installation and enjoy some awesome rewards such as seeing your face become street art!
WHO & WHY
Artists, Kristin Llamas and Alfonso Llamas are working to promote, engage and inspire the visual arts within Music City. Their slogan is “The World Hears Nashville, Now They SEE us.” This project, in partnership with the Tennessee State Museum furthers their mission to inspire and be inspired by visual art. It is an official INSIDE OUT by JR global art project and will be documented and shared with the world…we are bringing the world in, while sending Nashville around the globe.
Other INSIDE OUT projects around the world have created a beautiful impact, but Nashville’s trasformation is the first of its kind. These sculptural lanterns create a light box effect directly down the city street. This is Photography + Street Art at its core!
