LOOK AT ALL THESE PEOPLE MISSING MY POINT. :D But, seriously, since I’ve had to clarify this to every single person who’s responded to me - I’m not condoning the action, nor do I think he’s a good artist, in fact, he really fucking sucks at painting. However, since the act has already been done, I think it’s worth talking about it more than just calling him an asshole or saying he should be killed. Or at least thinking about the value we attach to certain artists that it provokes this reaction - both his and yours. And if you know anything about museum-grade painting restoration (really, it’s pretty amazing what they can do), you know that there was, in all likelihood, no permanent damage, much less complete destruction. So, really, chill out, guys.

“I’m not a fan of the actual design he sprayed on, nor do I like his work, but I do rather admire the action.” Your words. We’re done here.

RIFF, LOOK I CAN TOTALLY USE ALL CAPS ON MY FIRST SENTENCE TOO!
You seriously have no clue how this affects the museum, staff and community as a whole. The Menil Museum is open to the public, giving everyone (regardless of income) the opportunity to view these wonderful pieces of art. When incidents like this occur, Museums are forced to hire added security which makes it impossible for them to keep an open admission. See my point? So no, I will not chill out. As a matter of fact, I WILL WRITE MY FINAL WORDS OF THIS POST IN ALL CAPS.
