How to “Preserve” a Banksy Mural

August 12, 2013 | Marina Galperina

England’s seaside resort The Grosvenor has come up with a fantastic way to protect their prized Banksy mural, estimated to be worth $775,000.

No one is going to chisel it out of the wall or haul it off for sale or drill through it or tag it. No one is going to see it either:

The decorating team has preserved the Banksy. It has been boarded over and they have painted over the cover. It has been kept safely behind.

Nice job securing your art accidental property.
