DALLAS - Spectators at the Dallas Museum of Art were in for a real work of art Friday. Picture this, at 9:30 Friday morning, a crane being used to assemble a tent for a museum even landing on the museum's south side.

The museum says the crane operator was injured, but he was able to get out safely and was taken to Baylor Medical center.

Museum staff worked to preserve some of their real art by moving a statue. The crane just missed an iconic sculpture by Mark di Suvero that sits on the South Lawn.

But this avant-garde art installation proved to be a limited exhibit. Another crane came to haul it away, leaving a blank canvas.

"We are a museum devoted to the history of art all the way to the present. I suppose we do some things that are unconventional. This one, however, was not part of our plan,"

Hey, guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
