Calling all cinephiles and wannabe street artists!

With the success of our “Trip to the Athena” Méliès-themed paint & sip, we are excited to announce our next movie-themed paint & sip event, Exit Through the Athena, inspired by the graffiti street artist – Banksy. Once selected as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, Banksy continues to captivate with his well-known street art and mysterious identity.

OHIO Graduate Art Student Brooke Ripley will lead a 2 hour course that will guide you thru the creation of a graffiti-esque painting inspired by Banksy’s iconic style.

I just want to make the world a better looking place. If you don’t like it, you can paint over it!” – Banksy

Some have suggested that the whole story, including the emergence of Mr. Brainwash, is an elaborate hoax engineered by Banksy to satirize the commodification of art. If so, it's a brilliant one.
