Bridge Farm Primary School in Bristol named one of its houses after the local street artist Banksy, following a student contest to rename some of the school’s buildings after famous people with ties to the city. A few weeks later the school house would receive a brand new original mural and a letter, both signed by Banksy himself.
“Dear Bridge Farm School, thanks for your letter and naming a house after me. Please have a picture, and if you don’t like it, feel free to add stuff. I’m sure the teachers won’t mind. Remember, it’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission. Much love, Banksy.“
