On visits to three public galleries over the summer break, I saw:
- In one gallery, no attendants except the person on the front door desk (and all visitors behaving themselves, regardless of the lack of supervision)
- In another, one person walking around briskly with a clipboard (the attendants in this gallery always carry clipboards and walk around briskly - I wonder if that's part of their training?)
- In the third, at least one attendant in each space, often chatting with co-workers or leaning on the wall reading a paperback (which is pretty understandable)
