Banksy Sponsors Free Admission on Mondays to LA MOCA’s Art in the Streets Exhibition

We really wish we’d told you about this yesterday, but fortunately there are a few more Mondays left between now and early August. Late last week, Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art announced that famous street artist, and included exhibitionist, Banksy, has sponsored free admission to the museum every Monday for the duration of its controversial street art exhibit, Art in the Streets. Like we sort of halfheartedly apologized for above, you missed yesterday, but if you want to catch the show and don’t want to pay for it, you have until August 8th, when it closes up shop and prepares for how it will terrorize Brooklyn next spring. Here’s a bit:

“I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it,” said Banksy. “MOCA is very grateful to Banksy for his unprecedented gesture,” said MOCA Director and exhibition co-curator Jeffrey Deitch. “Art in the Streets is drawing record attendance, and opening it up to everyone will have a lasting impact on communities in Los Angeles, many of whom have not been to the museum before.”
