Category: Shawshank: Art Crimes

This series is devoted to the curious and combustible true stories of crimes committed in the art world. Does the criminal action and/or the perpetrated injustice incurred from the action besmirch the character of the work? Can we, the consumers of art, cognitively disconnect our negative emotions about the outcome of the crime such that we can retain our enjoyment of the creation? How do we feel about “problematic” artists?! We’re on the fence! Be prepared for some beefy discussions!
