We are not doing a good enough job

According to Claire Voon writing on May 23, 2016 for the website Hyperallergic, at the Shanghai Museum of Glass, two adults stood and videotaped the two children who were with them as they played with and broke the art work, “Angel Is Waiting” by Shelly Xue. The museum is now playing surveillance footage of the incident next to the piece. Whether this will serve as a lesson on what not to do or will inspire copycat actions remains to be seen. As these four were visitors to a museum of GLASS, it is clear is that we are not doing a good enough job educating the public on how to interact with different kinds of works of art.
