Walker Art Center's Sculpture Garden in Process
The Walker Art Center has been in the process of restoring Claus Oldenburg & Coosje Van Bruggen's Spoonbridge and Cherry, and we thought we'd take a moment to highlight the event to show how social networking sites allow museums the chance to have a different kind of interaction with their patrons. Whether you follow the Walker Art Center on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, or Twitpic, you'd have the chance to get updates about lectures, parties, and happenings you might not hear about elsewhere. Many museums are jumping on board with the new technology, so look for links to "follow us" when browsing your favorite museum websites or search for them on your preferred social networks. You might just enjoy behind the scenes workings of museums and announcements like this or this.
