An image of four headless mannequins with dark skin on a white museum platform. Each is wearing a different museum uniform from a New York City museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The uniforms are composed of grey or navy wool sport coats, collared shirt and tie, grey wool trousers, and black shoes. None of them have name tags. Each mannequin stands with its arms by its sides.
