Finders are keepers at Art Series Hotels

Finders are keepers at Art Series Hotels

‘Stay the night. Steal the art’. That's the slogan employed by one of the Art Series Hotels in Melbourne, where guests are encouraged to attempt to steal a hidden piece of artwork.

Clues to the location of one of the ‘no ball games’ works by graffiti artist Bansky are being posted on Facebook and Twitter through January 15 and anyone who successfully steals it is allowed to keep it; if they get caught then they have to return it. As PR stunts go, it's pretty savvy marketing on the part of the hotel.

Bansky is known for sneaking his art into museums and has gained recent fame in the art world for his critique of Catholic priests.
