Museums using social media to interact, educate, and inspire

I’m starting to collect some illustrative examples of the many ways that art museums are attempting to interact, educate, and inspire their audiences via social media. My goal is to document a representative sample of platforms, formats, content types, tone, and style.

  8. Jay DeFeo's paintings are monumental to behold. Created using (literally) tons of paint, the works are also delicate and fragile. Pictured: Paula from SFMOMA's conservation team carefully inspects an area of DeFeo's "Incision," which is on view at SFMOMA as part of the artist's retrospective through Feb. 3. #jaydefeo
