Some Pro-Animal Guerilla Art

I learned from a friend of mine about this exhibition.  Apparently the exhibit is closed but the website is well worth a visit:

The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill

Guerrilla artist Banksy has opened his first official exhibition in
New York. The fake pet shop aims to question “our relationship with
animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming”.

Where: No. 89, Seventh Avenue South, Greenwich Village, NY
(Between West 4th St. & Bleecker St.)

Subway stop: Christopher Street

Dates: Exhibit closes 10/31/08
