This was the scene in Tompkins Square Park this afternoon. And here's the official explanation of what was on display (via Facebook):
The Iran Human Rights Documentation center teamed up with the Inside Out Project, created by the Parisian street artist J R, in a pop-up protest against the incarceration of journalists, artists, feminists and other activists in Iran on the morning of February 18th outside the United Nations and at Tompkins Square Park on February 20th.
Like the J R project, in which large portraits of ordinary people are plastered on walls and sidewalks, the installation at the protest included portraits of 11 people who are currently imprisoned in Iran, and two who were recently executed.
