Presented by Aurora and Substance Art Collective, the Saving Banksy Exhibit features the “Haight Street Rat” by notoriously elusive UK graffiti artist Banksy. Estimated at $2 million dollars, the infamous piece was originally painted on the side of a San Francisco bed and breakfast. The piece was saved by art collector and TV executive, Brian Greif, who went on to make the highly acclaimed 2017 Netflix documentary ”Saving Banksy.” The tour was spawned from the film to start a conversation about the importance of street art.

The exhibit also showcases “White Morons” by Banksy and a piece by LA graffiti icon RISK, alongside work by local graffiti and street artists from each tour stop location.
