art attack and attack

i just had to put these two stories together… from boingboing, art attack, on the developing story of steve kurtz, and from the new york post, wacko in ‘art’ attack.

the stealthy museum invader has hit the guggenheim (ny), the met (ny), the national gallery (dc), the philadelphia museum of art (pa), and, according to newsday, princeton (nj) and yale (ct).

not that these things are related, of course, but let’s get a statement from the metropolitan museum:

The Metropolitan is a repository for the greatest works of human creativity over the last 5,000 years. It is not a bulletin board. For us it is clearly an unwelcome demonstration of self-aggrandisement.
