Set Them Free

The Outings Project was started by the artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca, after he visited the Louvre last year, noticing a lone painting in a back corner. Wanting to get the painting seen and appreciated by people who may never visit the museum, he made a copy of the painting and pasted it on a public street.

Since setting free the first painting, people in several cities have followed suit, turning this into a participative project, which Casabianca says, was not the original idea, but one he embraces.

Below are some favorites that have popped up in the project gallery:
