Indulge in the work of enigmatic British street artist Banksy at "The Art of Banksy: Without Limits," now on view at Ice Palace Studios. After touring Europe and Australia, the exhibition has crossed the pond with over 155 pieces, ranging from certified originals, prints, photos, and sculptures, on display. The show, though, is not without controversy.

Also, the exhibit itself is not endorsed by Bansky, who has said he doesn't charge people to see his art. On view through April 17, at Ice Palace Studios, 1400 N.
