Police officers were forced to shut down former model Mia Tyler's art show over the weekend (15Sep12) due to overcrowding and noise complaints.

Tyler, the daughter of rocker Steven Tyler, invited guests to attend the opening reception of her photo collection, Survival, at New York City's Lambert Fine Arts in gas masks on Saturday (15Sep12) in order to keep up with the exhibit's theme.

But the stunt caused a stir and cops were subsequently called to the venue.

The exhibition was shut down as the authorities ruled too many people were crammed into the art space.
