Vandal Clothes Renaissance Painting of Venus

For the first time in the history of red spray paint in the vicinity of a poster girl's breasts, a vandal made a billboard less sexual. To advertise an exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the billboard in Long Lake, MN featured a 16th-century Titian painting of Venus. The vandal painted a red tube top over Venus' breasts and commented, "Brrr!"

Venus has since been stripped naked again (see her titties here) though there was some dissent: Local prudes found her nipples disturbing, and museum officials thought the alteration was "funny." Apparently they had no say in the matter, though, because the billboard company has a policy against graffiti. Expect this billboard to become a hotspot for local Banksy wannabes, anyway.
