Time Lapse Video of JR's Massive Ellis Island Mural Going Up in Tribeca Over a Week

As we shared earlier this month, Street Artist JR posted a massive 95-foot pasted photographic mural in Tribeca featuring a scene of children immigrants at Ellis Island in the early 20th century.

This great time lapse video from DDG shows the mural going up over a week's time, from a blank wall to completion.

The piece “Unframed, Ellis Island” is 95-feet tall and is a blown-up photograph of a group of immigrants on Ellis Island in 1908. In this one-minute time-lapse video, you get to see how JR and his staff install the wheat-pasted work of art, one piece at a time.
