To promote an exhibition by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, the Museum of Contemporary Art put up a billboard. Not long after it went up it was tagged by graffiti artists, and the billboard was quietly taken down.

According to LA Weekly, it turned out that Murakami himself saw the billboard on the Internet and found it "so wonderful, he had to have it for his collection."
