Thank you, Banksy!

Banksy: I Hate Mondays

collaborative chapel
This is a collaborative piece by Banksy and about 30 other people.

Courtesy of Banksy, a world renown street artist, the MOCA exhibit "Art in the Streets" is free on Mondays. It's a bit of a line, but definitely worth the wait!
Waiting line

I went last Monday and it was seriously an incredible exhibit. It's only open til August 8th (next Monday), so check it out while you can. It is at the MOCA: Geffen Contemporary (near Central and 1st). Cut your class, ditch work, and head downtown because my pictures won't do the show justice. You won't be disappointed.

If you do decide to go next Monday, go EARLY! At 3pm today there was a line several blocks long, probably over an hour wait.
