2011 TED Prize winner – JR

I was pleased to hear that the recipient of the 2011 TED prize was French “street” artist/photographer JR. The prize, worth about $100,000, is not only generous but also places recognition and attention on JR’s unique take on “art for the people”. TED has a great description of his brief but fantastic career so far and also includes nice large images of his work, I have always been fond of his “Women Are Heroes” series.
