The subtitle is Behind the Scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the content is a series of varied, first person, quasi-biographical reports of how the Met works:

1. "We received our art education at home, where we were fortunate enough to be surrounded by Impressionist paintings…"

2. "The building is in pretty good condition considering the amount of use it gets.  There have to be at least thirty bathrooms in this place, and in each of those bathrooms you have six or seven toilets, four or five urinals, four or five sinks, plus you have the locker room for the employees, with showers and things like that."

3. "I think it’s very important to have art in the world.  I am somebody who is not terribly impressed with people.  The only thing which is really exceptional about humans is art; apart from that, we are animals."

Who would you most like to be?
