The Price For Slashing A Painting

Follow up the previous  blog “slashing the painting“:

Timur Serebrykov, the former security guard at the Carnegie Museum of Art was ordered to pay $245,000 for slashing a valuable painting at the museum last year. He was also ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device for 11-23 months, four year probation and 500 hours of community service.

Vija Celmins’ painting was defaced, but she also got media coverage so that people like me who haven’t got the chance to see the exhibition would at least remember her name and the works.
