Reader: Carmen Tisch proves that bad tattoos do not make an art critic

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:

From Private:

Perhaps someone may be offended by the poor art in her tattoos and do the same thing to her canvas?

From Fabio:

Maybe they should keep the drunken street monkeys out of museums.

What should be Tisch's punishment? Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation already under way here.
