Smile Boston Project
Smile Boston Project is a short documentary film by David Tamés about Bren Bataclan's "Smile Boston Project," a street art project. In the summer of 2003, Bren Bataclan began leaving paintings of his colorful characters for people to take all over the Boston area on park benches, in subway stations, schoolyards, and other public locations. To each painting Bataclan attached a note that read, "This painting is yours to keep if you promise to smile at random people more often."
