Museums Ban Selfie Sticks
on 10 February 2015
Museums are taking a stand against selfie sticks by prohibiting them in their exhibits. Already publicly banning the photo-enhancing rods are The Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, the Frick, and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts—with more looking to join. According to the museums, Instagrammers wielding the extendable arms could injure guests, or worse yet: damage irreplaceable art.
