Banksy Is Having a Month-Long Show On the Streets of New York

Where's Banksy? New Yorkers can spend October searching for works by the mysterious -- and wildly popular -- UK street artist as he launches a month-long, city-wide exhibition called "Better Out Then In." One piece (above) has already been spotted by the Village Voice at 18 Allen Street (though we've heard it may already have been painted over or, at the very least, a part of it has been vandalized). Each work will also include a stenciled, toll-free number that you can call for an audio guide that explains more about the piece.

But listen-up boys and girls, don't go tearing down walls to steal the art -- you'd be better off spending the month of October looking for the man himself and snap a picture of him in action. How much would that be worth?
