Reader: Carmen Tisch proves that bad tattoos do not make an art critic
Clyfford Still's 1957
Everyone's a critic, but Carmen Tisch took it too far on December 29, when she offered her assessment of "1957-J- No.2," a large piece at the Clyfford Still Museum. Tisch is accused of scratching, punching and rubbing her butt against the painting, which is valued at more than $30 million. And then she peed right by it.
Her non-rave inspired this comment from guest:
"Stay classy denver."

Tisch, who's been charged with criminal mischief, will be in court today. But the verdict is already in from our commenters:
Perhaps someone may be offended by the poor art in her tattoos and do the same thing to her canvas?
Maybe they should keep the drunken street monkeys out of museums.
