In the UK, lines outside Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery (estimated to be an hour wait time) are testimony to the popularity of notorious street artist Banksy. The museum is proud to present a unique collaboration between the city’s foremost cultural institution and one of the region’s most infamous artists. Most widely recognized for his subversive stencil art, Banksy needs no introduction to many. And of course in true Banksy fight-the-power style, admission is free. The exhibit will run until August 31st. Wish I was on the other side of the pond for this one! Since the installation seems beyond words, check out the trailer for some flavor:

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    I think entry to all the non-private museums (i.e government run) is free – it’s certainly the case up here in Scotland.
    Just a small point to combat the hype that is Banksy!

    Why “versus”? Why not “Banksy Goes Mainstream”?
