Forgotten Classical Art Taken From Museums To The Streets

When French artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca visited the Louvre, there was one lonely girl that caught his eye; that girl, portrayed in a lonely painting in a forgotten corner, inspired him to help forgotten paintings like her live a second life. He took a picture of her, pasted her up in the street, and the Outings street art project was born.


Now the projects has become a “world participative project;” artists around the world have been invited to turn characters from forgotten classical paintings into street art, where they might get the renewed attention that they deserve.
