Tour the Unframed Ellis Island art of JR
June 10, 2017 on Ellis Island at 1:00 p.m.
Join a special guided tour of the JR art installation Unframed Ellis Island.
Your ticket also includes a museum quality poster of the window image “Seven Children” chosen by JR specifically for Save Ellis Island!
This tour will lead you through the 25 images by framed French artist JR and in addition will discuss intentions behind the installation as well as the techniques that were used. You will be brought into spaces that are not accessible for viewing on our regular tour route such as the psychiatric ward of the general hospital and the second floor of the contagious disease hospital.
JR’s Book The Ghosts of Ellis Island is on sale on our website.
This evocative book includes the entire exhibit and original historic photos. Also included in the book are drawings by Pulitzer Prize author and cartoonist Art Spiegelman.
