Can’t Get Enough of the Georgia Museum of Art? Join Us on Snapchat!

This week we’d like to share our Georgia Museum of Art Snapchat account with you, where our staff posts daily, behind-the-scenes pictures and videos from museum life. We are proud to be the third museum in the nation to acquire a Snapchat and are excited about exploring this platform further as a way to stay in touch with art lovers in the Athens community and beyond.

Point your phone at this image, this is our unique Snapcode.
For the uninitiated, Snapchat is a smartphone application that allows users to post updates of their life that only stay online for 24 hours and show other users how they have experienced their day. We use our Snapchat account to inform our followers about events, exhibitions and exciting developments. For example, our past snaps have included videos of the preparatory crew putting together an exhibition in the museum galleries, a photo series about current pieces on display, videos of group tours and other related art-lifestyle posts.

Snapchat comes as the newest addition to the museum’s growing social media presence that currently includes Facebook, TwitterInstagram and this blog.

To add the Georgia Museum of Art to your Snapchat, open the Snapchat app and point your Snapchat camera at our unique Snapcode, which is shown here in the blog post. Then tap the screen. Your app will register the museum’s account and you can start viewing our content immediately. Alternatively, you can follow the museum by adding our username, @georgiamuseum, directly in the app.
