The New York Times wrote up the latest edition of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s employee-only art show and they managed to find very few people willing to discuss it.

More from The Times:

Even tighter than the security, perhaps, are the lips of museum officials about the show. Harold Holzer, the museum’s senior vice president of external affairs, initially said the show was a private event, and he would provide no more information about it.

Every one of the nearly 20 guards approached while working in the museum this week said they were forbidden to speak to reporters about the show, which is open during museum hours but also on Mondays, when the museum is closed to the public.

Also forbidden were three-dimensional works, and anything larger than four feet in any direction. All the same it sounded fun.
