Guards and Artists

Many of the guards the Metropolitan Museum of Art create art when they aren’t standing in museum galleries guarding the great works. Now they’ve created an art journal titled Sw!pe Magazine and have a show of their works at 25CPW gallery. Jason Eskenazi, Guggenheim Fellow and former Metropolitan Museum guard, Phil Padwe, Metropolitan Museum guard, and Bess Greenberg, Executive Director of 25CPW Gallery, talk about the exhibition and the new art journal. 25CPW Gallery is located at 25 Central Park West.
