Hotel Hides a Banksy and Invites You to Steal It
Chalk this up as one of the best hotel promotions ever.
The art at Art Series Hotels is not for stealing. But this summer (it's summer in Australia right now where the hotels are located), we’re shifting the goalposts and hiding a Banksy in one of our Hotels for you to steal. The $15,000 masterpiece is one of just a handful of signed and authenticated Banksy's available in Australia. Find it, as it does the rounds of our hotels, and it could be yours.
No Ball Games’ is part of a series of historical note. In 2007, a group of bandits removed a section of a wall with an angle grinder because Banksy had stencilled around the 'No Ball Games' sign on it. The wall was later found on ebay for sale for 20,000 pounds.
So now it’s your turn. We want to see if you can steal Banksy. We highly recommend against an angle grinder, but you will need plenty of guile and cunning. Find the art and try and steal it. If you don't get caught it's yours to keep. If you do get caught, then back up on the wall it goes.
No Ball Games will hang from 15 December. Book to stay at Art Series Hotels between 15 Dec and 15 Jan, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for hints on its whereabouts, and let the games begin.
Time to book a trip down under and put those Oceans 11 skills to use.
