Michael Gross, author of Rogues' Gallery: The Secret History of the Moguls and the Money that Made the Metropolitan Museum, blames Anna Wintour for making the Met lowbrow. "The most highly publicized event at the museum has been turned into a magazine and movie-promotion party ... The museum has struck a Faustian bargain with Vogue that diminishes the museum [sic]. The tail is wagging the dog," Gross told the New York Post. "You could say anything that gets people in the door of a museum is a good thing, just as you could say anyone who reads a book is supporting literature. But it's the difference between reading a Harlequin romance novel and reading Samuel Beckett or Proust." Do you agree? Will you see more than just the Models As Muse exhibit on your next visit to the Met? [NYP]
