Museum: Behind the Scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Danny Danziger
Using more than 50 interviews, award-winning writer Danziger creates a fascinating mosaic of the people behind New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. From the aristocratic, acerbic former director of the museum, Philippe de Montebello, to the curators who have a deep knowledge and passionate appreciation of their collections, from the security guards to the philanthropists who keep the museum’s financial lifeblood flowing, Danziger brings to life this world through the words of those devoted to making the Met an American institution. Moderated by Kristi McMillan, Adult Programs Manager.
Read in conjunction with Vault Visible: Behind the Scenes at the Asheville Art Museum.
