AIDS Charity Housing Works to Get at Least $211,000 for Banksy Nazi Painting


As you may have heard, for yesterday's work in his NYC-based 'Better in Than Out' exhibition, Banksy bought a painting at a thrift shop, painted a Nazi into it, and returned it to the thrift shop with the title "The Banality of the Banality of Evil".

That charity thrift shop was Housing Works on E. 23rd street, which works to end AIDS and homelessness. Housing Works is currently auctioning off the Banksy.

As of this posting, with a day to go in the auction, the leading bid is $211,311.00

Quite a gift from Banksy.
