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!
