These guys are charging people $20 to view Banksy’s latest piece in East New York, Brooklyn.
The piece is part of Banksy’s “Better Out Than In” project, wherein he creates a work in a different NYC location daily, then Instagrams the general area of the work.
Banksy is British artist who keeps his real name and appearance secret. His works sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars, and two have sold for well over one million each.
East New York is a predominantly black and Latin@ neighborhood in Brooklyn. According to Wikipedia, it also has the highest crime rate in New York City, and over half of its residents experience poverty.
According to reports, white people are currently flocking into East New York to look at Banksy’s piece. A few tried to chisel it out of the wall, and claimed to have called a contractor to remove it when their attempts failed. Since then, a group of neighborhood residents have taken charge of the site.
Gawker writes: “These men, heroes that they are, have elevated the original work, turning it into a performance piece about the commodification and hipster-fication of people’s homes. If you’re going to treat a neighborhood like an art museum, why shouldn’t the residents of that neighborhood charge admission like an art museum, particularly when many New Yorkers would never come to that patch of the city but to take a picture of a stencil painting of a beaver?”

I ain’t evn mad.

Mad? I’m proud as hell. Making money off some foreign dude coming in and messing up your neighborhood when if you did the same thing you’d be arrested for vandalism and vilified as “thugs” by the same white people lining up to see this? That’s some fucking badass entrepreneurship. I hope they make enough money to start their own business because these guys should be going places.
