A West Loop venue, where Chicago's "Art of Banksy” exhibit was scheduled to be held, announced that organizers were "nowhere found." However organizers claim frequent changes in agreements between the parties are to blame for the decision to move it.
Organizers claim that the event is not being cancelled and are looking for a new venue.
“We regret that due to irreconcilable differences between our organization and the owners of Epiphany Center for the Arts, we are currently confirming an alternate venue for The Art of Banksy,” organizers said. “Epiphany Center’s management team frequently changed the terms of our agreement in a way that made producing the show in this venue untenable.”
