NEW YORK, NY.- Brooklyn-based Street Artist "Lambros" opened his own Art Exhibits at both the MET, and the MOMA this past weekend.
Over six pieces of Art were put on display, some as large as 2 x 4 ft. Bootleg postcards with the artist's work were also left in the museum gift shops. The postcards were made to look like official Gallery merchandise.
The art was removed from the Museum walls, but the conflict now becomes what to do with it. Each piece of art is inscribed with the name of it's intended owner. The high-profile list of recipients include Charles Saatchi, Glenn D. Lowry, Larry Gagosian, Iwan Wirth and rapper Jay- Z ; to name a few.
Whether or not the Museums are legally obligated to return them to anyone remains a question. The scandal surrounding these six pieces of art, already grants them immense value, infamy, and an unknown fate.
