Banksy Museum Hack

Banksy

Last week the infamous UK graffiti artist Banksy covertly installed his own artwork in four of New York’s major art museums: The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History.

The Wooster Collective has full coverage of Banksy’s brilliant museum hit.

Dressed as a British pensioner, over the last few days Banksy entered each of the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.

I’m sure our friends at the BLF must be quite proud of the wonderful execution and style Banksy used on this museum improvement.

UPDATE: The New York Times ran a story on this yesterday: “Need Talent to Exhibit in Museums? Not This Prankster”
