'BANKSY: COMPLETED'
Stockbridge, 6-7:30 p.m.
IS183 Art School in Stockbridge will host an evening art talk titled “Banksy: Completed” with Carol Diehl. After Banksy’s self-styled month-long New York “residency” in October 2013, where he produced a work of art in one of the five boroughs each day, Diehl spent several months making a serious investigation into his work. Enjoy a thought provoking evening discussing this elusive artist.
