Art Museum Now on Instagram and Will No Longer be Blogging

The UW Art Museum now has an Instagram feed!  We're in the market of visual arts and we wanted a way to share more images with you, and have our visitors be able to share their images with us!  Instagram seemed like the logical choice, so we hope that you find us and follow us at uwartmuseum. 

We've also noticed that our blog has been seeing less activity, and that blogging didn't seem to be the best way to share information.  After today, the Art Museum will no longer be actively blogging, but we won't be taking it down so you can still find past information.  Our website will remain the primary source of information, and you can always find up to date info and news on our Facebook page. 

We hope you'll transition with us to a more visual vocabulary, and we hope to see all of your great photos at the #uwartmuseum!

Survey for UW Students

UW Students compare art and artifacts in the Resource Room

The UW Art Museum has launched a survey to get feedback from UW students about the types of activities and levels of involvement that they'd like to see from the museum.  Currently, the museum is exploring options to engage UW students outside the classroom.  Ideas include a student docent program, a student membership level, an informal museum group, or increasing after hours events for students.  

The short survey is easy to complete and is available on Survey Monkey. Students who complete the survey will have the opportunity to enter their email address to be entered to win a $25 gift card to The University Store.  The survey will be available through April 14.
