Finally got a chance last night to get out to the Jacksonville Public Library for the Haight Street Rat by Banksy exhibit and it did not disappoint!

Co-curated by the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, the exhibit opened on February 14th and will run until April 7th, 2018.

The "Writing On The Walls" installation, held in the Jax Makerspace, features street art inspired work by local and regional artists with the 7'x7.5' Banksy original as the cherry on top. It's an amazing display and it's right here in our city, so make sure you get out to see it before it's gone!
