Picture of the Day: Banksy Converts a New York Delivery Truck
BANKSY CONVERTS A NEW YORK DELIVERY TRUCK
For the month of October, Banksy is attempting to host an entire show on the streets of New York entitled, Better Out Than In. The roaming exhibit features an audio guide which can be accessed by dialing a 1-800 number. You can see all works to date on banksyny.com.
In a piece entitled All City, a converted delivery truck was unveiled somewhere in the East Village on Saturday. The storage area was converted into a mobile garden and the truck will visit a different location for the remainder of the month. You can hear the audio guide by calling 1-800 656 4271 # 3
The audio guide says the 1992 GMC ‘diesel-powered landscape’ delivers ‘calm’ and features a working waterfall. The audio guide goes on to mention that, ‘such a juxtaposition is a common theme for the artist—or put another way, he just keeps repeating himself.’
