The locations of "Wrinkles in the City" murals

I always admire the murals artwork of JR. In May 2012, JR collaborates with Cuban-American artist José Parlá on the latest iteration of The Wrinkles of the City. Their works can be seen on this site:

jr-art.net/projects/the-wrinkles-of-the-city…

Questions .. Where are these murals located? A street address will do a lot of help..

Muchas Gratias!

This article gives a couple of the locations: huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/14/wrinkles-in-th…

Elio Milanes at Hospital Y Callejon de Hamel

Leda Antonia Machado at Peñalver Entre División Y Escobar

Both those addresses are in Centro Habana.

The book probably gives the addresses.
