As a former "gallerina," I have always known that the hottest thing about the art world is, hands down, the art handlers.
Well, the New York Times seems to have finally caught up with me (and practically every other woman I know in the gallery and museum field):
This weekend they have a fabulous spread of the beautiful art handlers of New York in the Sunday Magazine -- click here to see it online!
Not only are art handlers hot, they also tend to be really nice, down-to-earth, and fun. They're usually (but not always) guys, and usually (but not always) aspiring artists or musicians.
And not only have I always had a soft spot for art handlers, I actually married one! (And though Jae is not in the biz any more, he does contract out from time.)
So congrats to all the art handlers (including our friend Hendrick pictured here)! The Times might be over-looking your considerable skills with tape measures, box cutters, hanging hardware, and cardboard, but you all look absolutely great!
