Last month, French street artist JR installed a giant image of a child looking over the U.S. – Mexico border. This month, he continues his work at the border with a piece of performance art.
JR posted a picture on Instagram of a picnic he hosted that spanned across the Mexican – U.S. border. The “Giant Picnic” as he called it was meant to point out the many controversies surrounding the border. Read what JR had to say about the project in his post below.

For the last 10 years, I have been working in conflict zone, jails, borders and I always found an « angel » that helped us make the impossible possible … The picnic today was clearly forbidden, and yet it was not shut down. It’s always worth trying 👁 📷 Roberto De Angelis & Tea by @miamaestro
