The British graffiti artist, Banksy, practiced the art of giving art at four of New York’s fine museums.
At the Amercian Museum of Natural History, he hung his drawing of “Withus Oragainstus” a beetle with sidewinder missiles and satillite dish in the Hall of Diversity.
At the Brooklyn Museum, he hung a colonial era portrait with anti-war graffitti, “Soldier with a Spray Can.”
At the Museum of Modern Art, he hung “Discount Soup Can,” a silkscreen print that Warhol would appreciate.
And at the Metropolotian Museum of Art, “You have beautiful eyes,” shows a period woman in a gas mask.
His site also has a short clip of him, dressed as Inspector Clousseau, installing his Brooklyn piece to the music of the Pink Panther Theme.
