Museum Visitors Mistake Glasses on the Floor for Art Exhibit

17-year old TJ Khayatan and his friends recently decided to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He tells BuzzFeed that they were largely underwhelmed by what they saw. For example, one of the galleries had on display a stuffed animal on a blanket. How was that art?

So Khayatan and his friends decided to play a prank. They placed a pair of glasses on the floor. Other visitors promptly looked at it in wonder, confusing it for a work of art:

Within seconds of putting the glasses down and walking away, Khayatan said people started gathering around the “exhibit” to view it and take pictures. After a while, more and more people started doing the same, so he decided to take pictures of them admiring his “art.”
