'Artist' sells museum blank canvas for $84K

ZeroHedge: Danish artist Jens Haaning was given $84K by a museum - the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark - and promised to use the money to create a work of art that would be featured as part of an exhibit. After receiving the money - $84K in US dollars - Haaning emailed the exhibit's curator, saying he had changed his mind about the project, and had changed the title to "Take the Money and Run". He then delivered the project - but kept the cash, which was supposed to be used as part of the project (the new piece was supposed to be part of a series where the artist used actual euros to depict the average annual income of different European countries).
