Dressed as a British pensioner, contemporary artist Banksy has installed four pieces of his art in New York’s most prestigious museums: The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History. He entered each of the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authoritative name plaque and explanation.

He told the Wooster Collective,

"This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue….[my art is] good enough to be in there, so I don’t see why I should wait!"
