Photo mural project advocates immigration reform

The mural in progress Wednesday afternoon.

Inside Out Project 11M will be parking their photobooth truck off the corner of 9th and L streets today from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m to photograph the faces of Sacramento and advocate for immigration reform.

11M is part of Inside Out Project’s international photo mural movement that aims to put a face on immigration and, according to the website, create “a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike.” The photos from the booth will become large-scale paper portraits, which will be posted with wheat paste to create a biodegradable mural

Any and all are welcome.

One of Sacramento’s Inside Out Project murals, located at R and 16th streets, was vandalized recently and will likely need to be removed despite some beliefs that the graffiti, which read “shameless self-promotion: egotism is not art,” added to the conversation around the work.

No word yet on if anyone has plans to weigh in on this conversation with spray paint, but if that’s not your bag tell us what you think here. One more photo mural on the grid, political advocacy via public art – yay or nay?
