Tomorrow Night: See JR’s Film, “Women are Heroes,” and Talk with the Artist

The French street artist JR has (literally)  been making a big impression on the Lower East recently.  It’s hard to miss his mural on the East Houston wall and lots of other wheat-paste creations throughout the neighborhood — all part of “Inside Out,” his global participatory art program.  Sunday night, there’s an opportunity to see another JR project and to take part in a “Q & A” with the mysterious artist.
