Erin’s Favorite #MemphisShared Instagrams (Guest Post)
(Ed. Note: Here's a guest post from Erin Williams, who has a teaser on a very cool crowd-sourced exhibit that's on display at the Brooks Musuem until January 12. Read, go see, enjoy.)
In the #memphisshared exhibition at the Brooks Museum of Art, 192 Instagrammed images taken in and around the city showcase everything from familiar landmarks (such as the Lorraine Motel) to the everyday (summer days spent lounging pool and/or lakeside). When you take the time to check it out, see if you can find these eight standout images that are dispersed across each section:
The one of the watermelon float by @iamjoeymiller
The one of the bunny drinking from a Starbucks cup by @tkatg
The one taken on a hot day at Otherlands by @pniqolh
The one of a fresh slice of cheesecake by @misskatiedi
The one of the man dressed in a flamingo costume by @iamjoeymiller
The one of the Post-It Note by @tootsiebell
The one of the fallen angel by @mhgurley
The one of the ferris wheel by @loganbutler1
After you take a spin around the gallery, you just might feel inspired to start snapping away at the figures and factions you encounter in your daily life, or find a few more profiles to follow. Whatever you take, don’t be afraid to #share!
#MemphisShared will remain on view through January 12.
