Value of broken vase: $1.3 million. Reason for breaking: Priceless
Miami police have arrested a local artist who they say destroyed a US$1 million (S$1.3 million) vase by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei (above). It's said that he did it to protest against the city's new museum displaying only international art. Dominican-born Maximo Caminero, 51, was arrested and charged on Sunday with criminal mischief, after he picked up one of 16 brightly painted vases at Perez Art Museum Miami and threw it to the ground when confronted by security, according to a police report.
