Breaking News – 11th October 2011

Another painting was vandalized yesterday at the Museum of Liverpool.  A group of visitors to the museum reportedly rubbed their fingers in the not fully cured oil of The Beatles in America by Jonathan Gent.  The controversial painting was donated by the artist to the museum for a charity auction to benefit Claire House, a hospice center for children with life-threatening illnesses.  Experts say that the painting is so badly damaged they are unsure if it can be restored and sold at auction.
