Logo of Dismaland

Dismaland is a temporary art project organized by street artist, Banksy, constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. Prepared in secret, the pop-up exhibition at the Tropicana, a disused lido, is "a sinister twist on Disneyland" that opened during the weekend of August 21, 2015. Banksy has described it as a "family theme park unsuitable for children."

Banksy created ten new works and funded the construction of the exhibition himself. The show features 58 artists of the 60 Banksy originally invited to participate, and is scheduled to run until September 27, 2015, for 36 days, with 4,000 tickets available for purchase every day.
