From the Post:

If you've ever made an exhibition of yourself by falling asleep on the job, we might have the perfect employer for you.

The New Museum of Contemporary Art is seeking women between the ages of 18 and 40 to sleep in a bed - a different participant every day - in an exhibition by Chinese contemporary artist Chu Yun who "creates a human sculpture by inducing sleep."

The women will get paid $10 an hour just for getting some ZZZs.

The museum, located at 235 Bowery, has posted ads, including one on the American Association of Museums' job board, seeking about 100 women "who are willing to come and sleep at the museum during its opening hours to the public."
