Seeking to humanize, empower and transform, French street artist JR has taken his "Inside Out" project to over 100 countries, mostly poor and troubled, to paste about 140,000 giant portraits of those who live there. An HBO documentary tonight explores the power of images in what has been dubbed the world's largest participatory art project.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
