Friday Photos: #DMAfaves

This summer, we have a new self-guided tour available at our visitor services desks and online: #DMAfaves. It includes twelve of our favorite artworks from across the globe and throughout human history, so the tour will take you all over the Museum! Read each artwork’s label to learn more about it, then earn DMA Friends points and a special badge by checking in at each work along the way.

In addition to these, we wanted to share a few more of our own favorites from the collection:

And now we want to know your faves! Be sure to stop by, check out the #DMAfaves guide, then share a photo of you with your own fave DMA artwork on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with #DMAfaves–and don’t forget to tag us!

See you soon!

Foursquare perks

We adore our visitors and we enjoy connecting with them through Facebook, Twitter, Uncrated, and Foursquare. It is a great way for us to hear directly from you, like on Ask a Curator Day on Twitter, and now, we want YOU to help us pick our special on Foursquare.

Specials can be for the Mayor (the person with the most amount of check-ins at one location, for more info click here), a certain number of total check-ins, and maybe even for a particular badge.

We will accept suggestions for a week on Facebook, Twitter, and our blog, and then we will let you vote on the top four suggestions. It needs to be something special since it is a special, but it also has to adhere to a few guidelines. We encourage you to use your creativity when coming up with specials, but we request that you keep in mind our social media guidelines. Also, we won’t be able to include requests like hanging your art in the Museum galleries or behind-the-scenes passes to our art storage in the running for the special. Some examples of things we would be able to do are discounted admission for certain badge holders (the Warhol badge is pretty cool), discounts at the store after a certain number of check-ins, and Sneak Peeks for the Mayor.

We can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
