Free Mondays at Art in The Streets Courtesy of Banksy

The Museum of Contemporary Art announces today that British artist Banksy will sponsor free admission at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA every Monday for the duration of Art in the Streets.

“I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it,” said Banksy. “MOCA is very grateful to Banksy for his unprecedented gesture,” said MOCA Director and exhibition co-curator Jeffrey Deitch. “Art in the Streets is drawing record attendance, and opening it up to everyone will have a lasting impact on communities in Los Angeles, many of whom have not been to the museum before.”

The gift will help engage the exhibition’s diverse audiences and make it universally accessible—an important trait of graffiti and street art, which the exhibition illuminates.
