All the beauty in the world : the Metropolitan Museum of Art and me / Patrick Bringley.

Bringley, Patrick, (author.).

Summary:

"A fascinating, revelatory portrait of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its treasures by a former New Yorker staffer who spent a decade as a museum guard"-- Provided by publisher.
Only a few select people enjoy unrestricted access to every nook and cranny of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and among them are the guards who keep a watchful eye on the two-million-square-foot treasure house. For Bringley, the Museum was a temporary refuge that became his home away from home for a decade. Here he explores his tribe: the artworks and their creators and the subculture of museum guards. Though Bringley gradually returned to the larger world, here he explores the Museum's hidden wonders-- and the people who make it tick. -- adapted from jacket.
