I felt like a rock star!
Museum Hack provides invigorating, intelligent yet surprisingly intimate group tours. The format works whether you're a total newbie and have never set foot inside a museum before, if you've previously visited but haven't always connected or if you're an art history aficionado. I almost hate to use the word "hip" - as it is grossly overused - but it was that much fun! This was a tour even a teenager would enjoy.
The tour was:
a) part Vogue
b) part Clue/Mystery
c) part Romance & Cosplay
d) part Action Adventure blockbuster
We moved at a good pace - physically moving across the entire museum between floors and up stairs which got our hearts pumping a bit. You could tell there was much thought put into how the tour might best utilize the collection. We saw paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces.
We started off with a bit of museum intrigue by giving the docents a wide berth. Think of this as a potential bit of "old" ways vs. "new" ways of doing things. Or in technology terms, Museum Hack might consider itself a bit of a "disruptor" of the stodgy perspective of attending museums. Even though we are all entitled to share spaces available to the public, some people are fussy and territorial.
Like opera, which was the popular music of its time morphed into something many perceive as the main purview of the mature and wealthy. Music and art are for the everyday person as much as the curator or benefactor. During these increasingly uncertain times, we need more creativity now more than ever.
Our affable tour guide mixed historical references with mentions of contemporary artists whose works could be complimentary. What a brilliant idea and point of reference that elevated this far beyond even what a seasoned art buff might expect. This tour was a surprise of useful information that you could find useful long after it ends. I'll never look at a museum the same way again.
