Frye Museum promo

Frye Museum promo

In the spirit of the “citizen curator” celebrated at the Frye in recent exhibitions includingThe Seattle Project (2010), Beloved (2012), Mw [Moment Magnitude] (2012), and 36 Chambers (2013), we’re disrupting museum practice and turning the Frye over to you.

There are 232 paintings in the Frye’s Founding Collection. Their crowdsourced curation is taking place now on FacebookInstagramPintrest and Tumblr as well as at the Frye website.

The voting to determine what will be on display September 27, 2014 through January 4, 2015 in the Museum’s #SocialMedium exhibit ends at 11:59 p.m. Friday August 22.

The Charles and Emma Frye Free Public Art Museum is a 501(c)(3) private  foundation organized as a charitable non-profit corporation in Washington State. It opened in 1952 and is the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye. See their Founding Collection in alphabetical order by artist.




Graphic designer launches social media campaign around global warming

logo for Milton Glaser campaign

According to Dezeen magazine, graphic designer Milton Glaser has launched an awareness campaign centered on global warming.

Glaser created the iconic “I love NY” logo as well as a Smithsonian-featured ’60s image of Bob Dylan.

“There is no more significant issue on earth than its survival,” Glaser told Dezeen. “The questions is, ‘how can anyone not be involved?’”

Support the campaign by buying five buttons for $5.00 (that covers postage and handling). The campaign encourages selfies with the hashtag #itsnotwarming. For campaign news, follow the Twitter account ItsNotWarming.

Social media tips and reminders from #WLW14

social media

What happens when Hubspot pulls together representatives of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter with the goal of holding the world’s largest webinar?

For the answer, see the Storify below. But I have three points for webinar organizations/presenters:

  1. Acknowledge where you’re providing  basic info for level-setting or background. Let us know that you know the info is basic, which implies that momentarily your info will be worth hanging around to hear.
  2. Put data points on the visuals being shared with the live and future audience, so you can avoid having “39″ reported as “45.”
  3. Never ever ever skimp on audio quality.
