Winnipegger gives Ellen DeGeneres tour of Guggenheim Museum
Finn MacLeod gives DeGeneres, wife Portia de Rossi private tour of world renowned art museum
Winnipegger Finn MacLeod is working at the world renowned Guggenheim Museum this summer and has had numerous memorable experiences already.
MacLeod’s dream internship has him educating the public on all things art, giving tours to the public and even interacting with the odd celebrity.
Case in point, MacLeod couldn’t believe it when he was told recently to prepare to give Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi a private visit of the museum.
"I think my jaw hit the floor and I couldn't really say anything for about 10 minutes," said MacLeod. "It was absolutely surreal to hear that she was coming in. This isn't an abnormal occurrence but to have a celebrity of that magnitude was quite bizarre."
MacLeod said the museum closed for the celebrity tour.
He was impressed by how much the two knew about art, and even Winnipeg.
