Banksy in Detroit

From the Detroit Free Press:

Bearing trademarks of the internationally known British graffiti artist called Banksy, a 6-foot mural of a yellow bird inside a cage has been found in the Packard Plant in Detroit.

A photograph of the piece has been posted on the artist’s Web site, typically the way Banksy authenticates his work.

It was carved out of the wall and carted away on June 17th.

Last month, artists from 555 Nonprofit Gallery and Studios controversially removed another Banksy mural from the Packard and displayed it in their Detroit space.
