Tortoisegate 2014

The controversy over the brand new Aspen Waffle Fry, er, Aspen Art Museum is hitting the big time as a New York businessman and Turtle Conservancy board member is asking the public to stop supporting and attending the museum. Andy Sabin believes that Cai Guo-Qiang's art installation "Moving Ghost Town" - which features three desert tortoises with iPads mounted to their backs- is exploitation, and he intends to run ads in the Aspen Times calling for a boycott.
