The LA Weekly has exclusive access as JR (our 2011 TED Prize winner) and his crew paste up a new exhibit across Los Angeles this week. Called “The Wrinkles of the City,” the show pastes images of older LA residents across massive streetside canvases. From the LA Weekly:

“The Wrinkles of the City” involves 20 secret Los Angeles locations, an astounding feat to be accomplished by next week. Watch this space as we reveal JR’s image and site of the next wall at 2 pm daily.
