The latest casualties of the Covid-19 Pandemic are 80 staffers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which announced layoffs and pay cuts yesterday. The museum also warned that its budget shortfall for 2020 might reach $150 million. “While we are not immune from the impact of this pandemic, the Met is a strong and enduring institution and will remain one,” Daniel Weiss, president and chief executive of the museum, said in a statement. It won’t make those staffers feel better to know that the museum has survived worse situations since it was created 150 years ago. But this is surely not the birthday it had in mind. The story of all that the great institution has endured is told in Rogues’ Gallery, for those who’d like to take a voyage into its dramatic past, while waiting for its reopening later this year.
