Count Me… In! Over 80 Banksy Works, In Chicago — July 2021, As A Live In-Person Exhibit

This is certainly one of the times I’ll gladly show. . . my vaccine passport. [Longer term readers know my history with shameless fandom, for this artist — if you don’t, just click this link to the main site.]

To be able to walk languidly about a large gallery space, savoring each texture — standing only a foot or two from a wide array of authentic originals. . . how sweet. One local report has it, thus:

. . .The city of Chicago will hail over 80 original works from street artist Banksy in a new exhibit running July through November to a “secret location” in the West Loop neighborhood.

Presale ticket sales end May 6 at 10 a.m. . . . As of Tuesday evening, some dates in July have already sold out and many have limited availability. . . .

Banksy’s works are mainly dated between the years 1997 to 2008, according to the website, and include “Girl and Balloon” and “Flower Thrower,” among others.

Exhibit officials added that indoor pieces from original works on canvas, wood and paper have been less exposed, but will be on display. . . .

Yep — I’m all over this, like white on rice. Grin. . . .


But who shall I say will be my plus one?
