Shoplifting in Chelsea

According to

"'Luxury Goods,' a new group show organized by art collector Beth Rudin DeWoody for athleen Cullen Fine Arts in Chelsea, seems to have drawn a special kind of viewer -- the shoplifting kind. A few days after the opening, someone surreptitiously snatched a work by John Findysz titled Tom on Tom (ca. 1998), a pair of vintage Gucci loafers covered with a collage of images from a Tom of Finland book. The work is worth $3,000, and the gallery is offering a reward for its return."
