In our new normal, museums around the world are finding new and clever ways to engage with people at home. I wanted to share with you some of my favorites.
Our friends at the Addison Gallery of American Art, also here at Phillips Academy, have gotten creative with Legos and stop-motion animation. Registrars: The Movie was the best 2 minutes of my day and I hope it makes you smile too!
A fabulous trend on Instragram are people dressing themselves and their homes like art. The creativity is impressive! Discover the trend through #gettychallenge, #betweenartandquarantine, and #covidclassics.
Do gerbils appreciate art? I don’t know, but I stumbled across this article about some art lovers who decided to find out. By all accounts, the gerbils had a positive experience with their private tour! And I hope you do too.
My favorite museum distraction is following the National Cowboy Museum on Twitter. Head of Security, Tim, has taken over their social media and has the best dad jokes around. Wonderfully refreshing and clever, Tim’s tweets bring a smile to my face every day – #HashtagTheCowboy. I can’t wait to find a reason to travel to Oklahoma City, OK and visit.
