Yellow tape and a sign declaring the exhibit is temporarily closed until further notice.  I feel frustrated that I won’t get my cheap thrill—looking at something I don’t really want or need to see.  So the bride is stripped bare by her bachelor but we can’t peep.  Étant donnés.  Revert the fountain to original use.  Secure cherry trees against hares.  The fractured glass won’t create a prism and self-doubt leads us to another room.
