Screenshot This – 7 Art Accounts to Follow on Snapchat

The art world is starting to adapt the practice of the average museum-goer: looking at an image for a mere seven seconds. Artists, museums, and magazines are joining Snapchat and using it in more ways than to create filtered selfies and display Sunday’s brunch. Follow these accounts for a behind-the-scenes look at installations, some easy laughs, and an all-access ticket to the hottest art events and openings.

LACMA’s pairings of pop culture references with pieces in its collection are brilliant enough that they’re Webby Award-winning! Plus, LACMA’s a veteran to the app, having been the first museum to join the platform two years ago.

 

Museum of Fine Arts: @mfaBoston

Following LACMA’s lead, the MFA’s account also provides an amusing juxtaposition of the past and present – think emojis placed atop ancient artifacts.

 

JR: @JRARTISTE
