This is almost as embarrassing as the time I spilled potato salad on Ben Gazzara (true story). So, a woman in an adult art education class at the Met on Friday tripped and fell into Pablo Picasso’s The Actor, causing a six-inch tear in the bottom of the over six-foot canvas. Met people are pissed, though they claim they’ll be able to fully repair the damage. No word on the identity of the art-hating vandal but I’m pretty much picturing Barbarba Streisand from Meet the Fockers here. The end.
