Outside in Wuppertal

Natural Reaction by Kami & Sasu

In the weeks prior to the opening of the Wooster on Spring event, as the year was coming to a close, we spent a lot of time with the various artists over dinners and beers catching up on the different events and shows that they had been a part of during 2006.

The one event that everyone seemed to be talking about was “Outsides” that took place in Wuppertal, Germany back in August.  We heard some great stories about it from JR and Mare139

For eight days over 22 artists from around the world painted in different locations around Wuppertal such that all of the pieces where completed and became known to the public all on the same day - August 18.  Because of this, the entire city became an uncommissioned and guerrilla exhibition space with flyers giving local citizens the locations of each piece.
