WASHINGTON — A security guard at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Smithsonian Institution officials say the guard shot himself with his service revolver shortly after 3 p.m. Monday in a locker room in the basement level of the building. Officials say the public did not witness the shooting, and no one else was injured. The guard’s name has not been released.

If I wasn't guarding Air and Space, I'd shoot myself, too.

The Hirshorn has some good stuff time to time, generally it's on the stupid end of modern art.

Had a Statie do it on me about 8 months ago. Holding brains in while holding a skull that feels like a soft boiled egg...not fun.
