Launch New Window Warhol and Pollock Stolen from Everhart Museum in PA
The works of two renowned American artists were targeted in an early morning break-in Friday at Scranton's Everhart Museum, according to police and museum officials. Two pieces - Andy Warhol's silk-screen print "Le Grande Passion" and a painting by abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock titled "Springs Winter" - were taken from the museum's main gallery at about 2:30 a.m., a museum spokesman said. Scranton police were notified minutes after the thieves tripped the museum’s motion sensors. The thieves appeared to have been aided by a large tent covering the museum’s back entrance for an event, said FBI investigators and Scranton police. The burglars broke through a pair of doors to gain entry to the main gallery of the Everhart.

Launch New Window Serial Killer Art Raises Free Speech Debate
An online auction of artwork by a serial sex killer triggered outrage in Massachusetts on Tuesday where lawmakers proposed to block criminals from profiting on what they called "murderabilia," setting off a debate on free speech rights of prisoners. A colored pencil sketch of Jesus Christ kneeling in a desert by Alfred Gaynor, a serial killer serving four life sentences for sodomizing and choking to death four women, went on sale on Tuesday on a Web site operated by a prisoner advocacy group. It was one of nearly 300 artworks offered for auction through December 18 on The Fortune Society's Web site. If sold, nearly all proceeds from the work entitled, "A Righteous Man's Reward," will go to Gaynor, the group said.
