Did you know that Taco Bell had an art program or a corporate collection? Apparently one in Westlake, Ohio, does –or did. Someone took off with a this painting this past weekend. Westlake police captain Guy Turner said:
“That place has had nothing but bad luck. It’s caught fire, they had somebody crash into it and it caught fire. That place is kind of jinxed.”
It caught fire twice? Anyway, Captain Turner did not know the name of the artist but said it was likely commissioned by the fast food franchise. But police are not giving up the search for the work valued at $800.
“We’re going to search every dorm room and rumpus room in a ten mile radius…round up the usual suspects.”
A shame because the installation above the busing station with coordinated purple trays and salmon colored walls was really working. Hey, Mr. Burger King, where were you that night between the hours of 11 and 2? (via Artnet)
