BANKSY… [ ballsy… ]

yet more from the files of Stuff That Does it For Me…
banksy, a street artist from bristol surreptitiously hung his own work in 4 of New York’s top museums… the met, the moma, the brooklyn art museum and the natural history museum… commenting on this, banksy says “They’re good enough to be in there, so I don’t see why I should wait”. the piece in the Met was discovered the day of… the piece in Moma lasted three days… the other two remained hanging until banksy’s own publicity alerted them to it…
the NY Times piece is here. the Wooster Collective Exclusive is here. Click on either image to see the rest on banksy’s own site.
