Beginning October 1, new work from legendary street artist, Banksy will be sprayed on the streets of New York City. Banksy announced he will be holding a monthlong show, called ‘Better Out Than In’ on the city’s streets. His first painting is already up in Chinatown, and features two young boys reaching into a sign that reads, “Graffiti is a crime.” Those who can’t make it into the city can see the painting up on Banksy’s website.

A new painting will be added each day and will be accompanied by a museum-style audio guide. The pieces will have a phone number stenciled beside them, allowing anyone to call in and hear background on the about the art they are viewing. Unlike a typical educational audio guide, Banksy’s take is satirical and humorous – poking fun at the language you might hear through a headset in a traditional museum. For instance, for the first piece you’ll hear: “You’re looking at a type of picture called ‘graffiti’ from the Latin ‘graffito,’ which means ‘graffiti’ with an ‘O.’ ” Listen to this recording by dialing 1-800-656-4271 and pressing #1 when prompted.
