There's an art to taking selfies. And this woman is no artist!
This is a selfie gone wrong.... way wrong. Like $200,000 of art destroyed wrong.
Watch closely... on the right, at the top of the screen.

Selfie fail destroys $200K worth of art at LA exhibit https://t.co/xLUToQOAGW— ABC7 Eyewitness News (@ABC7) July 16, 2017

Inside a serene space, singular objects rest on plinths: these are crowns, or at least some resemblance of what a crown might be, presented as precious trophies or boons. The title of this work was inspired by the electronic dance track 'Hypercaine' by DJ Fresh. It is also a signifier of the ultimate human drug — power. - Simon Birch, Gloria Yu, Gabriel Chan and Jacob Blizter Brass, nylon, gold plate, marble, wood, stone, metal, 2016 - Customize your own crown ring in nylon, brass, gold-plated brass, silver or gold at the gift shop.
