An early May 2010 piece done by BANKSY.
“i remember when all this was trees”
Here is his photo of it on Flickr.
And the BANKSY website.
That’s crazy that this guy did a piece in the partially demolished Packard Plant here in Detroit….It just sucks that somebody couldn’t save this thing. It is actually a very important piece..
But how the hell would you extract such a thing from a mangled corpse of a building like Packard ?
Ladies and gentlemen, the attempt is being made to save the piece, spearheaded by Monte from 555 !
I had come back to the site last night to take better photos of the Banksy, because I wanted to give a print to my uncle David. I stumbled upon the 555 people going about trying to preserve this piece – BRAVO !
The whole process was well documented, and here’s hoping for success. I have seen such attempts in the past with not much luck. (the Art School of the Society of Arts and Crafts zodiacal murals)
I could not stay to see if they were successful – we’ll have to wait and hear from 555 on that.
