Global Project ‘Sets Art Free’, Turns Classic Masterpieces Into Street Art

Prestigious paintings are taking to the streets all over the world.

Initiated by French artist Julien de Casabianca, the Outings Project moves famous portraits from gallery walls to street corners. The project which started late last year is already making waves, with many major cities like New Orleans, New York, Portland and Madrid among others jumping at the chance to participate.

According to their website, it is a world participative project, encouraging anyone to "set art free" onto the streets.

Head over to the gallery page on their website to find out where these portraits are.
