The Kokomo–Howard County (Ind.) Public Library will become what is thought to be the first library in the world to host a piece of art by the street artist Banksy. The well-known, stealthy Banksy has created coveted political and social commentary street art around the world. The KHCPL will display a piece Banksy created in San Francisco on the side of a bed and breakfast, titled “Haight Street Rat,” beginning August 4. The piece features a rat sporting a cap reminiscent of Che Guevara.
