The Musings of a Department

Quotables from those fortunate few who work in MoMA’s print department:

“Look, if there’s a fire, I’m grabbing a stack of Picassos. Forget the crying baby in the stairwell. I’m taking the picassos. The baby only stands a chance if he looks like a Picasso.” — H, the keeper of the prints

“I haven’t seen a single male since I walked into this office.” — Visiting high school art student

“You’ll notice that around the holidays it gets a little crazy around here. There’s always food, tons of food. It’s one of the advantages of being an all-female department: people always give us chocolate.” — Emily
