Nobody’s a bigger supporter of the arts than I am. I just think there are some places for art and some places where — no art. And you running up to somebody’s property or public property and defacing it is not my definition of art. Or it may be art, but it should not be permitted, and I think that’s exactly what the law says.
Mayor Bloomberg’s comment on art, spawned by Banksy’s current residency in NYC, makes elderly billionaires seem a little out of touch, no?
