Another art attack!

A woman attacked a Clyfford Still painting by "punching and scratching it, then removing her pants and sliding down the artwork."

Any of you out there documentary filmmakers? Journalists? Who's with me to go on a quest to figure out why people do this to art? Any philanthropists out there who want to fund the project? I think I'm on the brink of an obsession. I want to write crime stories about violence toward art. Fictional or not.

Update: the woman was, allegedly, drunk. She urinated on herself in the incident, but not the painting. She has a prior for DWI, and was arrested a year ago for armed robbery. The Denver District Attorney said, thoughtfully, "you have to wonder where her friends were."
