I'm not too surprized that this was a Clear Channel event. Being the souless chrusher of all things creative, this seems just about right.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I'll crank out a bunch of throwaway pieces of art with lots of nipples on them. Have a showing where I put outrageous prices on them. Insure them. Then host an opening and serve unlimited rye drinks and vodka coolers.

Then stand back and wait for the money to roll in.

I just think people are beginning to take art for granted- not sure if that's a good thing or not. I guess not because they tend to destroy things that they think are worthless. Here's another story I found:

Officials: Boy stuck wad of gum to $1.5 million painting


DETROIT (AP) — Apparently, one 12-year-old visitor to the Detroit Institute of Arts doesn't think much of abstract art.

The boy stuck a wad of gum to a $1.5 million painting called "The Bay" by Helen Frankenthaler, leaving a stain the size of a quarter, officials said.

The boy, who was not identified because of his age, was part of a school group that was visiting the museum last week when officials said he took a piece of gum out of his mouth and stuck it on the 1963 painting.

The gum stuck to the painting's lower left corner and did not adhere to the fiber of the canvas, officials told the Detroit Free Press. But it left a chemical residue about the size of a quarter, said Becky Hart, assistant curator of contemporary art.

The museum's conservation department is researching the chemicals in the gum to decide which solvent to use to clean it. The museum hopes to make the repair in two weeks and will keep "The Bay" on display in the meantime, she said.

"Our expectation is that the painting is going to be fine," Hart said.

Holly Academy director Julie Kildee said the boy had been suspended from the charter school and says his parents also have disciplined him.

"He is only 12 and I don't think he understood the ramifications of what he did before it happened, but he certainly understands the severity of it now," said Kildee.

Why?
Did they make him sit through a modern art history lecture?

From what I've seen of some modern art, it could only have improved it....

Wasn't that a Monty Python sketch? Two frumps and their bratty kids, out of control in an art museum?

"He's just been in the Florentine Room and smeared tomato ketchup all over Raphael's Baby Jesus...PUT THAT BAROQUE MASTERPIECE DOWN!"

By the looks of and definition of art these days the boy's contribution can be seen as a work of performance art which makes a statement about the relationship between the detritus of the modern age and the concept of non-objective art.

Why is anyone surprised at this? You Colonials have never had a sense of decorum or manners.
