JR’s Louvre Wrap

Great to see photographic public art provocateur JR's latest installation, an intervention wrap of I.M. Pei's iconic pyramid at the Louvre. You might recall JR's work right here in the Old 4th Ward, from 2013, where he installed three murals.

Here's a look from October 3rd of last year, at the location of the furthest west mural, on Edgewood, where the piece looked to be living its last days.


And here it is now via Street View, permanently gone (though parts of the other two murals may still remain!)
