New York Museums Find "New Acquisitions"

A British artist by the name of Bansky managed to surreptitiously hang four pieces of his art in four elite New York Museums - The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History. He said he did so during normal viewing hours. "I've wandered round a lot of art galleries thinking 'I could have done that' so it seemed only right that I should try," says Bansky. "These Galleries are just trophy cabinets for a handful of millionaires. The public never has any real say in what art they see."
