Banksy Sells His Art On The Streets Of NYC For $60 To See What People’s Reactions Would Be
Banksy continued his month-long experiment in New York by offering a deal so good, nobody would take advantage of it. He set up a table in Central Park selling original canvasses for $60. The lonely old man selling the art didn’t even make a sale until 3:30 in the afternoon, and that was to a woman who talked him down 50%. By the time he folded up the table at 6, only $420 worth had been sold. When Banksy posted this video of the experiment, New Yorkers throughout the city cursed themselves for missing out on an investment easily worth five figures. I was planning on going to the park on Saturday but opted for the free Wallflowers show in Times Square instead. What was I thinking?
