Hey Tumblroonies! Here’s a little peek at my museum life, and probs too many peace signs. Come explore the MET with me with #MuseumHack!

Meet Jessye: Museum Hacker

Get to know our awesome Museum Hack team members! Check out the interview below, or the video short above. This week, our Hacker Jessye Herrell talks overnight museum adventures and sweaters:

  • Which museum do you give tours at?
    The Metropolitan Museum of Art!
  • Tell us about one of your favorite Museum Hack experiences.
    My favorite moments at Museum Hack are the moments when people surprise me with their enthusiasm! An elderly gentleman busting out a push-up to fight museum fatigue comes to mind.
  • If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight, what would you do? After a solid four hours of pretending to be Indiana Jones in the Egyptian galleries, looking at the night sky from the mezzanine in the American Wing courtyard, and playing hide & seek with a friend who would surely join me on this adventure, I’d curl up in the Princess & the Pea style bed in the Wrightsman Period Rooms.
  • What is your favorite article of clothing?
    My Cosby sweater. No shame.

We’ve finished the quart of maple syrup from last year’s trip to Gould’s Sugar House…almost time to return for the annual family visit to watch the boilers at work and eat some damn tasty pancakes.

I’m confident that they make the best pancakes known to man (granted, a lot of that has to do with the maple syrup). Mmmm.

Foliage in Downtown Northampton, MA from a visit this summer.

These were both taken near the bike path which goes over Route 9 via an old railroad bridge, now lovingly referred to as the truck eating bridge, which has featured local artworks for years. When I grew up, it looked like this. It’s recently had a pretty sweet makeover, although I do miss the ‘oops!’.

Chatter from the Galleries

While learning about sound effects:

Me: Can anyone share an example of a sound effect?
4th Grade Boy (with eager defiance): A fart.
Me: Yes. A fart is totally a sound effect.

I can’t believe it took nearly three years for this to happen. Glory be!

In my uncle’s apartment in Arlington, VA. One of these OCD-inspired crates is just labeled “rain,” and another with a complicated mathematical equation. 

A quote from our last visit (part of his explanation of the book he will someday write):

"It’s only gonna be read by people who experience life as a horror, but it’s gonna be damn good."

Middle School Boy: How come when Michael Jackson died you guys didn’t get one of the cars?
Me:…are you referring to Moonwalker…?
Middle School Boy: Yeah.
Me: ::astonished:: You’re right. We should have.

Finally got around to adding a gallery of the film I shot in Israel to my website. It’s incredible that a country the size of New Jersey can have such a diverse landscape (not to mention many desert farms- let’s hear it for irrigation)!

The whole gallery.
