Guarded Opinions 2

By Wendy Iraheta and Ruben Green; edited by Paul VanDeCarr

Guards in art museums spend about as much time with a painting as the artists themselves. So what do they think of them? They’re not allowed to say—at work, at least. For the second installment in this series, Paul VanDeCarr speaks with two guards at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles about paintings by Gustave Moreau and Edgar Degas. A regular feature.

New York–based Paul VanDeCarr does writing and research for nonprofits and foundations about the arts, media, criminal justice, and storytelling for social change. His blog and podcast on the many forms of storytelling is at InsideStoriesOnline.com.
