The Instagram Beat and Upcoming December Events

This past August, we reopened our permanent collection to the public, and visitors have extended their museum experience to the digital realm on Instagram in delightful ways. Their posts demonstrate how social media can continue to engage us with the museum's collection outside of our walls as well as how art can continually feel new and playful. We are grateful to our visitors who enliven the museum experience and exemplify our motto here at the Georgia Museum of Art: Art for everyone.

Soup-er women!
