Banksy Exhibit at Moville Library

Last week, the intern that is currently working at our library created this little exhibit of some of Banksy's work.  She gathered all the materials from a book and some websites on the internet.  The first column you see are the titles of his works, the second and third columns are his works.  The goal is to match the titles with his work.  Anyone who comes in to the library has a chance to match the titles with the art.  A lot of school kids come in to the library in the afternoon.  It is a good exercise for them according to our librarian.
I only put my favorites in this post.

  6. Last year I visited an exhibition in Amsterdam with works of Banksy. It was very interesting. I recognise some of the pieces on your photos.

  11. I think that library intern is very clever and of course Banksy is a genius when it comes to art and the political statement. I love the selection you've shown us.

  13. Thank you for taking the time to put this post together. Many of his pieces speak to me and his ideas are desperately needed these days when rage and violence seems the norm among so many groups and their leader(s). That global warming picture is so powerful, but they all are.

  18. Another artist to research. So happy that there is an abundance of artists who use their craft for social messages of importance. Love the "bomb of flowers" rather than a Molotov cocktail.
