Unframed – Ellis Island by JR Photo Gallery

An art exhibit titled “Unframed – Ellis Island” is being installed now in Ellis Island’s historic south side buildings. The exhibit will be part of the new public tours to be conducted by Save Ells Island.

This first time ever south side exhibit is by the artist, JR, who has done work throughout the world.  The artist is preparing life size historic photographs of Ellis Island immigrants that will be pasted on 16 or more selected interior walls on the south side of Ellis Island.

The artist’s intent is to evoke a sense of time and place and give context to the human lives that were touched by their time at Ellis Island.
