Paris Louvre Museum’s iconic pyramid celebrates 30th anniversary

The courtyard around the Louvre Museum’s iconic pyramid will disappear this week as part of the celebrations of the iconic monument’s 30th anniversary in a project that kicked off. French visual artist JR masterminded the art project, in a similar vein to his previous project when he made the 70-foot-high pyramid disappear behind a giant black-and-white photo three years ago.A small battalion of 400 volunteers began by pasting a colossal 160,000 square feet paper image over the courtyard and the emptied fountain basins with brooms and large vats of wallpaper glue. The image will create an illusion of a larger pyramid emerging from the rocks as if it were discovered by an archaeological excavation.The new optical illusion will be unveiled on Friday evening, the exact date of the anniversary.
