On June 3rd, the anniversary of Andy Warhol’s shooting, a museum visitor lost their balance while observing the art decked walls of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), brushing against Warhol’s Triple Elvis on his way down.
A fellow visitor’s friend reported witnessing this shocking mishap to KRON4, the visitor explaining the lost of balance causing this museum guest to “elbow and possibly fall into” the $82 million painting.
After being removed as a precautionary measure and evaluated, damage to the painting was deemed “minimal”.
SFMOMA has not commented on the state of the painting or the event.
