Executive Director of the Arizona Commission on the Arts Writes "Bullshit" on a Photograph by Tony Zeh

On the opening night of Eye Lounge's annual fundraiser show, art community members mingled and snatched up small-scale works donated by local artists.

The show's an opportunity for the Eye Lounge to raise money, for collectors to snatch up pieces they recognize (each is signed by the artist on the back and is left unlabeled) and for artists to experiment with size and medium -- and in photographer Tony Zeh's case, message.

But Zeh's message didn't last long before he says it was defaced by the Executive Director of the Arizona Commission on the Arts, Bob Booker.
