During the nearly fifteen years that Vincent Punch has been a guard at the Whitney Museum, he has seen myriad exhibitions, snapped countless candid photos, and developed a distinct eye for spontaneous visual arrangements that take place every day in the galleries. In this Whitney Stories video, he shares his observations on working as a guard, and offers his unique perspective on the Whitney and its future.
This video is part of an ongoing series which sheds light on the Whitney's plans through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the construction team—view more Whitney Stories videos below.
