As part of French artist JR’s worldwide Inside/Out project, OZ Arts Nashville took a giant camera around Nashville back in June to take giant portraits of hundreds of Nashvillians. The photos were turned into posters, and the posters were put up at three sites – on the OZ Arts campus itself, at Casa Azafrán on Nolensville Rd., and down at Merchant’s Corner off Lower Broad. This is by definition temporary art, and indeed, I can’t vouch for the current condition of any of these. I took the Casa Azafrán picture shown above in late June just after it went up, the Merchant’s Corner picture a few days after that, and the OZ Arts picture last week. A gallery of the individual portraits can be seen here on the Oz Arts website.
The Casa Azafrán mural is found on the north wall of Casa Azafrán at 2195 Nolensville Pike. Parking is fairly easy, and the mural is probably easier to access if you park out back. Links to the other two sites below.
