This museum asked their security guards to curate their newest exhibition. Baltimore Museum of Art’s latest show, titled “Guarding the Art,” showcases 25 artworks from their collection, selected by 17 members of their security team. Suggested by board member Amy Elias, the aim of the exhibition is to bring new life to the museum’s way of presentation and obtain new perspectives along the way. “It [the exhibition] gives visitors a unique opportunity to see, listen and learn the personal histories and motivations of guest curators. In this way, the exhibition opens a door for how a visitor might feel about the art, rather than just providing a framework for how to think about the art,” she explained in a statement.
