Reader: Carmen Tisch needs to come clean in the Clyfford Still vandalism case
Carmen Tisch, accused of vandalizing a $30 million Clyfford Still painting on December 29 -- she reportedly scratched it, slid down it and urinated by it -- was in Denver County Court on Friday, January 6, to hear the charges against her.
Her family says Tisch has alcohol problems.
Tisch, who has a prior conviction for driving under the influence in 2008, is scheduled for another court appearance -- this time on a preliminary hearing -- on January 23.
In the meantime, readers are weighing in with their own sentences.
I think her punishment should be a shower. She looks long overdue for one.
Unlike this sorry story, some pranks turn art vandalism into vandalism as art. See Melanie Asmar's list of four far more humorous cases here.
