Who are the curators for the exhibit opening in March? The folks who spend the most time with the art, and gently remind people not to touch it — 17 members of the museum's security team.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King.

The Baltimore Museum of Art has found a set of guest curators to organize an exhibition that opens next March. The curators in question are the people who spend the most time with the art and gently remind people not to touch it - seventeen members of the museum's security team. The exhibition is part of an effort to draw in more diverse perspectives and is appropriately named Guarding the Art.

It's MORNING EDITION.
