Let’s use art to turn Occupy inside out: An urban exhibition of black and white portraits.

The world has its eyes on Oakland as the Occupy movement dramatically unfolds. Thousands of people with different backgrounds and ambitions are gathering to demand change. Their diversity and their stories are the strength of Occupy.

INSIDE OUT

Inside Out is a global art project that uses large scale portraits to transform messages of identity into powerful urban exhibitions.The Inside Out Project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize (watch JR’s TED talk). You can visit the Inside Out website to see stunning examples of some of the projects that are popping up in over 9,000 locations all over the globe.

PLANS

We have already taken the portraits, but there is a lot of work left to be done in order to bring these images to the streets. We will be pasting photographs all over Oakland with the permission of building owners. Standard portraits measure 3’x5’ and our large portraits sometimes cover entire buildings. Think of the entire city of Oakland as our canvas: Brick walls, metal garage doors, fences, rooftops, smokestacks, alleyways, windows, and any other creative locations are in play.

We appreciate each and every donor for making this project possible, and have listed some great incentives for you. Your donations will go towards printing our extra-large portraits, materials and tools for pasting them onto building facades (buckets, brushes, squeegees, wheat paste ingredients, scaffolding, and ladders), print and web media, and the creation of a documentary short that will allow us to share our portraits and the stories behind them with the world.

A SAMPLE OF PORTRAITS (total 44)

OUR FIRST PORTRAITS HAVE HIT THE STREET, AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING...

MOCK UPS OF SOME OF THE PORTRAITS ON BUILDINGS

HOW IT WORKS:

1) You donate, you get a reward! Even if it is $1, every bit counts.

2) If we don't meet our goal by the deadline, we don't get ANY funding

3) If we raise more than our goal, we keep the money, which means the project just gets bigger and better!

4) Would you like to help further? Spread the word! Share the Kickstarter campaign with Facebook, Twitter, friends, family, and community.

5) Follow us on Facebook and Twitter so you can keep up to date with our progress.

6) Contact us at inside.out.occupy.oakland@gmail.com if you would like to get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
