Banksy Museum Coming to Austin thanks to theChive?
𝙩𝙝𝙚𝘾𝙃𝙄𝙑𝙀 founder's Leo Resig & John Resig are planning on a permanent Banksy Museum in Austin to display their 28 piece Banksy art collection including an original art piece created on garage door in Venice they have amassed over the last decade.
A recent ABIA Airport exhibit gave Austin a taste of what's to come in an eventual Banksy museum.
"The goal for the Banksy museum is to showcase every limited-edition print created by the artist. The museum would not be authorized by the artist.
I think to get it off the ground, we would definitely want to look for certain grants that could be available, but hell or high water, we're going to open one." Leo Resig said.
"A permanent Banksy museum in Austin will instantly make (the city) a global destination for a lot of people," John Resig said
They plan to host a pop-up Banksy show during South by Southwest at Atmosphere TV's office on Congress Avenue. The pop-up will have interactive elements and include items from the brothers' collection.
