Museum Selfie Day 2015

Did you know there is a whole day dedicated to museum selfies? It was an initiative started by Culture Themes, a multinational group of museum professionals. Each month, they come up with fun hashtags for museums. For example, September was #AskACurator and July was #MuseumCats. January is #MuseumSelfie and the exact day will be next Wednesday, January 21. We are encouraging people to stop by the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. You can take your selfie outside with the building or in the museum galleries. Be sure to use #MuseumSelfie and #FJJMA when you share your picture on social media!

We know that people love free stuff, so we will have a freebie for the first 50 people that participate in taking a museum selfie. When you show your selfie to the front desk, you will receive a customized pocket mirror that will be perfect for your future selfies!

Please help us spread the word about this fun initiative at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and be sure to get involved by stopping by for your own museum selfie. Also, keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for fun selfies of the FJJMA staff!
