There have been murmurs for the past couple of weeks that a new Banksy show may be abound, but today it has been confirmed that it is happening in Weston-super-Mare, August 22-September 27, 2015. Located on the Bristol Channel Coast of Somerset, England, Weston-super-Mare is, or was, a popular tourist destination with a population that is largely 65 or older. Weston-super-Mare is also the title of a Banksy print from 2003, image of which is found below.
According to the website, you can expect to see work from many artists from all over the world, not just Banksy, including Polly Morgan, Josh Keyes, Paul Insect, Bast, Espo, and even Damien Hirst. Tickets for guaranteed entry to the “amusement park” will be available starting Friday, London time, for only £3. You can bet your dollar that I will be F5’ing all day to get my ticket.
