4. Unframed, Ellis Island by JR
French street artist JR Tribeca mural entitled “Unframed, Ellis Island”
French street artist JR installed a 95-foot tall mural on the side of 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca. The piece, entitled Unframed, Ellis Island, is a blown-up photograph of a group of immigrants on Ellis Island in the year 1908. You might remember that in 2014, JR placed portrait murals in abandoned hospitals on Ellis Island, and later filmed a documentary titled Ellis, featuring Robert DeNiro.
