Brooklyn Museum is currently hosting an exhibit of the work of French street artist and muralist JR called JR: Chronicles, showcasing murals, photographs, videos, films, dioramas, and archival materials from his various projects. The centerpiece of the exhibit, which went up in October and runs through May, is The Chronicles of New York City, a new mural featuring the faces of more than one thousand New Yorkers from across the five boroughs, which is accompanied by audio recordings of each person’s story.

In keeping with JR's love for public art, the artist—in conjunction with the museum and architectural firm LOT-EK—has unveiled a separate public showing of The Chronicles of New York at a monumental scale: you can see it on the side of 16 stacked blue shipping containers in Domino Park starting today.

The piece is 53-feet-high and depicts 1,128 New Yorkers standing around the city, with the Williamsburg Bridge and Empire State Building among the notable structures you'll see in the background. Each subject was photographed individually and then combined into one image. You might recognize a few faces if you look close enough, including actor Robert De Niro, dancer Lil Buck and JR himself, doing a wheelie on a bike.

In a press release, the Brooklyn Museum writes, "As an artist, JR works to expand the meaning and power of public art through his ambitious projects that give visibility to communities and individuals across the globe through plastering giant monochrome photographs of faces in urban centers, often incorporating local community members to engage in debates specific to them. In the past, he has thoughtfully tackled difficult, timely issues on a global scale – from gun control and women's right to immigration."

The Chronicles of New York will be in Domino Park until early May. This isn't the only JR public mural that is going up around the city: there are already murals installed at Kings Theatre in Flatbush and the Brooklyn Academy of Global Finance in Bedford Stuyvesant, and more are expected to be installed throughout the run of the exhibition.

Previously, JR collaborated with the Bronx's Hunts Point Alliance for Children in the Bronx, wheatpasted stoops across Park Slope, and pasted historic life size photographs around the empty buildings on Ellis Island's south side.
