SALT LAKE CITY — The Inside Out global art project, which began in 2011, will have its latest project unveiled Friday, Sept. 21, at Neighborhood House.

Ted Prize winner JR, whose identity is unconfirmed and is described as a photographer and artist and the creator of Inside Out, has explained his project as something that allows communities to create art together by "transforming messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work." Portraits of those in the community are taken and developed into massive black and white posters which are then posted around town.Those who want to participate can also upload their own portrait online and several will be selected to be displayed on the Neighborhood House's garage doors.

The unveiling of the project is free to the public and will take place from 6-9 p.m. The Neighborhood House is located at 1050 W. 500 South.
