Artist curates self onto Guggenheim wall

Gothamist:
Over the weekend Mat Benote walked in during normal business hours and hung one of his own pieces on the famous walls, something the artist describes as "Fine Art Graffiti." He stated: “I want to illustrate that graffiti can be a positive influence in a community when applied properly, and as an art form, has as much right to be displayed in a museum as any other form of art.”

An American Banksy in the making? Way to get his work out there. I like his moxie!

thats some crazy stuff... now, not only can people say, "my kid can paint that!" when they go to a museum, they can also say, "i can do that!" what is this world coming to?... but it is pretty funny!
