Banksy Sold $225,000 Worth of Art at a Central Park Stall for $420 →

Banksy finds ways to stay underground when it’s becoming nearly impossible for him to make anonymous wall art. While folks in Brooklyn were charging NYC art elites & hipsters to see Banksy’s latest beaver stencil in their neighborhood, Banksy put out prints in an anonymous art stall, making us think yet again about what makes a piece of art valuable.

Chris Burden - Metropolis II (2010)

"Chris Burden’s epic kinetic sculpture is a complex and frenetic creation which took four years to complete and is a model of a miniature city with an intricate transportation system. It consists of 18 roadways, including one 6-lane freeway, train tracks, miniature cars, a network of buildings, which support the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulating every hour."
