Someone pawned an Elvis on velvet, but no Bugs. We got Dogs Playing Poker, if you want a replacement, but it has a mustard stain in the upper right corner.

This happens on occasion. Usually they get stopped by security, so they have to be about as sneaky as an art thief, even though they are giving something away instead.

Now considering what some (though certainly not all) modern art looks like, how did they even notice?

In the gallery at the Chicago Art Institute, they have a huge painting by a modern Asian artist. The entire picture is just beige. NOTHING else. Wow! I can do that any day and get myst stuff exhibited, if I can fool enough people...

Odd, I thought I saw the same pieces in a nearby thrift shop. If you come across anything by Paris Hilton during her Crayola period, send word.

What a clever boy. Believe it or not, this bold move will bring him the attention to make or break him as an artist. If he's any good, he'll be the flavor of the year, every collector will want a piece of him. Even if he's bad, the work he hung will surely be worth big bucks by the mere fact the painter had such a set of balls he set his own work on display and got away with it for three days.

No harm, no foul,.. so kudos to him. Wish they had posted a photo of his work.

They are going to sell the piece at a charity auction, so he will get publicity.

The museum will probably tighten their security, however, as he was like the leisurely hackers of old. Getting in was the fun part, and maybe they would leave a sign that they were there, like a web page if it is a server, or maybe a new document or something if otherwise. They really meant no harm, but wanted to see if they could get in. They were a wake-up call and helped security. When a hacker calls you up and says you have a problem with your security, you know you have a problem.

Possibly. But I thought her use of pink gave her work more, how you say, pinkitude.
