give to the poor
In 2009, street artist JR placed murals on the rooftops of Kibera, Kenya – Africa’s most dangerous slum – gaining him international fame in the process. But as JR’s fame grew, so did the value of the artwork. Which left people who made just one dollar a day living underneath these valuable pieces of art.
The Art Heist For Good is a one-of-a kind creative project that set out on a mission to take some of this world-famous art, sell it to the highest bidder, and use the money to provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions to the people of Kibera who desperately needed it.
