Since Gawker now covers art: A woman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday got way too excited about Picasso's "The Actor". She fell into it, ripping a six-inch hole in the rare Rose Period painting. Update:
A tipster sends in additional details about the circumstances surrounding the great Picasso Tearing of 2010, which they claim to have heard from a Met security guard:
There was a group of students touring the 20th century area and a special needs kid was sitting on the floor or leaning on the wall, went to get up, tripped and tore a six inch long hole in Picasso's 'actors'.
