Dismaland "is a temporary art project organized by street artist Banksy, constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super Mare in Somerset, England.[1] The secretive pop-up exhibition at the Tropicana, a disused lido, is "a sinister twist on Disneyland" that opened during the weekend of 21 August 2015.[2] 
Banksy has described it as a "family theme park unsuitable for children.[3]"
Banksy created ten new works and funded the construction of the exhibition himself. The show features 58 artists of the 60 Bansky originally invited to participate, and is scheduled to run until 27 September 2015, for 36 days, with 4,000 tickets available for purchase per day.[4] "
