So, I was right. About what, you ask? Well, about the fact that working at a place like MoMA must be absolutely fantastic!
As the assistant director of merchandising, Lauren Solotoff takes four or five international trips each year to select the items that fill the shelves of the MoMA Design Store. “My most memorable buying trip was last year when we visited Portugal,” she recalls. “The Ministry of Culture set up a private trade show for our team in an old rope factory by the port. They brought together more than 75 designers just for us.”
And while employment at MoMA doesn’t guarantee face time with celebrities or trips to Portugal, all staffers do benefit from free tickets to the museum’s film screenings, gratis access to other art institutions around New York City and exclusive curator-led walk-throughs of exhibitions after they open to the public. Generous vacation time (more than the standard two weeks, even for entry-level employees) and benefits packages seal the already-sweet deal.
