Bethany Bentley, a museum spokeswoman, chose the placement of the canvas - which is actually a prop from The Colbert Report's set – after the show's producers offered to "donate" the portrait.
"The Colbert Report is a tongue-in-cheek comedy show, and I felt this was a tongue-in-cheek comedy placement," said Bentley, who emphasizes that this it's all a joke, and that she wanted the humor "conveyed in every sense of the message – in the label, in where we hung it, and in its presentation."
The temporary addition will be taken down on April 1, but it's been a hit for the museum. So, why not add it to the permanent collection?
