This is really fun IMO. The article makes a point that the security guards probably know the art pieces better than most people since they are constantly patrolling and looking around. Plus it gives them a chance to have some fun curating the collection.

Looks like it's getting hugged to death: https://web.archive.org/web/20210716193902/https://artbma.or...

I love the BMA. It's a free museum with a great restaurant, cool exhibits, a nice park across the street. Nearby is The Book Thing, a free book store. Also another (non-free) book & record store, Normal's. And another, Urban Reads. And another bookstore/coffee shop, Bird in Hand. And a farmer's market. And a vegan restaurant. And the quirkiest diner ever, Papermoon. And a small rock venue. And a worker-owned co-op coffeeshop that President Obama visited. All in a four block radius.

Dang, I miss Baltimore.

I love this. It's like janitors solving problems left on blackboards, a wealth of experience that most people overlook altogether.

They will probably pick some pieces that have repeated viewing quality. Most pieces become boring after seeing them day in day out. The ones they still enjoy after seeing them daily are something special.
