The Met's Online Community Responds to McQueen
Posted: Wednesday, August 3, 2011
«At the Met, we're always eager to hear from our online community through our various social media channels. Whether it's a comment about the Featured Artwork of the Day on our Facebook page, a question posed on Twitter, or a photograph posted to our Flickr group pool, our online visitors' responses are thoughtful and varied, and we enjoy reading and responding to them. Recently, the exhibition Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty provided the Museum with an opportunity to hear from our online community in a new way; on a special McQueen page, we invited visitors to answer the question "What made you realize that fashion is an art form?" Not surprisingly, we received a wonderful range of responses, and we're excited to share them with you.»
See our new Share Your Story responses page, where we've compiled the terrific comments we received from the campaign. If you'd like to contribute, there's still time to share your story.
Lucy Redoglia is the imaging coordinator in the Department of Digital Media.
