Banksy 'Car Plant' work for sale

Tue, 11 Mar 2014

AN ART GALLERY wants to sell a work created at an abandoned Detroit car plant by the elusive British graffiti artist Banksy.

555 Nonprofit Gallery and Studios co-founder Carl Goines said proceeds from the sale would go to expand the gallery's programming.

Mr Goines said he's hoping the Banksy work will bring in between 200,000 to 1.2 million dollars (£120,000 to £720,000), which he says is the range of recent sales.

An 8-ft, 1,500lbs section of cinderblock wall featuring the stencilled artwork was removed from the Packard Plant site in 2010.

It features a figure of a child holding a bucket of red paint and brush alongside the message: "I remember when all this was trees."
