“What’s your favorite work of art?”
“How do you know that painting isn’t a fake?”
“So why won’t you give back those Elgin marbles, anyway?”
“Are you willing to steal a work of art for your collection?
“What’s the ugliest thing in your museum?”
“Why do you always dress in black?”
Those are just a few of the questions you may see flashing across your Twitter screen if you follow #askacurator this Wednesday, September 1.

So what do you want to know?
