Vincent Fusco is the director of operations said he’s excited about the exhibit being in Chicago.
“Chicago is a great place for art, a great place for culture, we thought it would be a great fit for our exhibit,” he said. “Basically, all the of the artworks that you see here are all on loan from private art collectors that have bought them at some point from Banksy.”
The crown jewels featured are the iconic works like “Girl and Balloon,” “Flower Thrower” and “Rude Copper” along with many other works.
