Toppled boom crane truck mistaken for sculpture outside Dallas museum

Given the right context, just about anything can be a work of art. For instance, Andy Warhol painted pictures of soup cans, and Marcel Duchamp displayed a urinal at an exhibition. The Dallas Musuem of Art recently received a temporary and very accidental new sculpture outside when a crane tipped over into the building.

According to CBS News 24 in Dallas, the crane was there to build a large tent for an upcoming party, but construction clearly didn't go as planned. People nearby were understandably confused, and thought this might a large new installation. After all, the toppled machine was positioned right next to a massive red sculpture, and together they actually made a rather attractive pair. No one was severely injured in the accident, but the crane operator had to go to the hospital.
