If you’re a fan of the arts and pop culture, you’ll want to visit Wolfhead Distillery this month. The craft distillery is offering a rare opportunity to see an original Banksy art piece in Windsor, Ontario…and for free!
The distillery will be showcasing the ‘Haight Street Rat’, an original Banksy that was saved from destruction in San Francisco. The artwork will be on display from November 14-16, 2017 at Wolfhead Distillery.
