A piece of artwork exhibited at Banksy’s Dismaland in Weston-super-Mare will be displayed in the town – but a location for it has not been confirmed.

The pinwheel, which was a prominent piece of art at the Tropicana during the 2015 exhibition, was donated to the town by Banksy.

The artist was keen from the outset for Weston to host a permanent reminder of Dismaland, and chose the wheel.

When the show closed, it remained at the Tropicana, displayed in the same place as it was during Dismaland.

But by last summer it was left on its side by one of the walls, and could only be seen by those visiting the venue.

North Somerset Council confirmed it still has the artwork, but is deciding what to do with it.

A spokesman said: “We are still considering locations to showcase this exciting piece of art.”

The council did not respond when asked by the Mercury about where it may go.
