The domino effect of the visitor’s fall permanently damaged three sculptures and caused various levels of damage to several other works, says one of the exhibiting artists. The total cost of the havoc came in at $200,000.

The exhibit featured crown-like objects that were made from materials like metal scraps and gold. Recently, an LA Times critic ironically called the exhibit a “series of wondrous, over-the-top sets for the perfect selfie.”
