“For the record, I’m doing it for the blog post NOT the art.”
This is how my best friend Jennifer responded when I told her we would be going on a Museum Hack tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Jennifer has never been a fan of “the arts”. To Jennifer, “the arts” can include anything from objects you might define as Fine Art like painting and sculpture all the way to a music video that doesn’t feature enough sequins… that was mean (and partially untrue) but she can handle it. Having known her for ten years, I’ve watched her attitude towards art morph from an aggressive hatred into a reluctant acceptance. Much like a conservative parent towards a son-in-law who’s… different.
