Eddie the Art Currator

By Peter Grant

Comedy & satire, Short stories | eBook


The cash-strapped museum has a hole in its exhibition schedule and Alicia Carter suggests they ask the guards to identify their favorite works. After all, they’re the ones who spend the most time staring at the collection; why not showcase the ones they can still stand to look at? They tap Eddie, a former museum guard, to curate the show and he reluctantly agrees. Eddie is always nervous when he’s out of his element, and a priggish curator doesn’t make it easy for him. When Stinky invites himself to a working lunch, simmering resentments surface. Will the snooty curator give them enough space to include the Maillol sculpture of a voluptuous nude woman? The female guards want Apollo to face the wall so they can see his butt. Will the homey Norman Rockwell painting emerge after years in storage? What about the “comfy” toilet on the second floor? Read on.

Peter Grant has spent hours in museum galleries wondering what the guards think about, other than wanting to beat guests' wrists with a nightstick when they get too close to an artwork. This story answers that question in a more positive manner. Like all fifty-seven Stinky Stories, "Eddie the Art Curator" is an Amazon bestseller. Enjoy this and other favorites in the collection, "Stinky as Ever, Volume 5." All are available on Amazon Kindle.
