Museum-Goer Accidentally Waded Into Carpet of Peanut Butter Art Exhibit

A hapless Dutch museum-goer got himself into a sticky situation when he unwittingly waded into a modern art installation: a carpet of creamy peanut butter by artist Wim T. Schippers!

The hapless visitor somehow failed to spot the 14m expanse of edible goo at the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands, Algemeen Dagblad reported overnight.

Bemused tourists watched as the man sank into the 1100 litres of peanut butter - enough to fill more than 2000 regular-sized jars. He has been asked to pay for the damage after leaving a trail of footprints.

"It is normal that people pay if they damage the art," spokeswoman Sharon Cohen told the Rotterdam-based newspaper.

I hope he only has to pay in a couple of jars of peanut butter! (Photo: Patrick Wenmakers over at - via Arbroath

When feces, vomit, urine or dirt is considered art, you know there's something wrong with the art world, or rather, with society in general. What peasant would consider such horror art? Right, those who project their mediocrities onto it. Those who consider this art, have no concept or art.
I blame Warhol, the antithesis of an artist, the destroyer of art.

Take a number, I think a few artists have already done that.


No, but it is a lawsuit.

Years ago there was an "artist" who was known for vomiting on paintings at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. As long as you thought of it first, it seems to be valid.
