I took Heidi on a date to the Banksy: Genius or Vandal? exhibition in Culver City, California, not too far from Los Angeles International Airport. We both loved it and I highly recommend it if you are in the LA area.
Banksy Expo in Los Angeles Is Worth Your While
Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based street artist, political activist, and film director whose real name and identity remain unconfirmed. I first really appreciated his art when we visited the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem just before the pandemic began. You can read more about him here.
A Banksy exhibit has been continually extended in Los Angeles for the last year and a half and offers a remarkable look at the artist and his work. The expo is set to end on July 31, 2022, so unless it is extended again, you only have about a week left to check it out.
Tickets are $39.00 each for adults and $26.30 for children. You can buy tickets here.
I don’t condone vandalism and don’t sign on to the revolutionary anti-capitalist message that Banksy seems to espouse (key words seems…the man is such an enigma). Still, his provocative artwork invites us to think and I greatly appreciate many of his works.
