Guerilla Art Project Brings Museum Artworks to City Streets Around the World

"Outings" is a world participative project created by French filmmaker and visual artist Julien de Casabianca, that aims to bring fine art to the streets by encouraging people to photograph anonymous portraits in paintings at their local museums, then print them and paste them throughout their towns and cities. So far the street art has spread to more than a dozen cities, including Barcelona, Rome, Warsaw, Belo Horizonte, London, Chicago, and New Orleans. Via the website, "Everybody in their own town can go to their museum, take pictures of portraits with their phone and set them free."
