BoombergConnects Instameet

#BloombergConnects instameet

One of the best parts about participating in the Chicago Instagram community is the cool photo ops that come our way. Instagram is a great photo sharing app, but it’s also a powerful networking tool.

Last night was no exception as a bunch of us visited the Art Institute after-hours for Bloomberg Philanthropies’ first Chicago-Based #BloombergConnects Instameet.  We took an intimate tour through some of the Art Institute’s most famous pieces and took a ton of photos along the way.

The #BloombergConnects Art program uses technology to connect people around the world to art, and improves the experience of visiting a museum. One of the many ways they do that is by supporting technology in museums. Needless to say, a bunch of Chicago-based Instagrammers getting creative in one of the world’a top art museums definitely fits that bill. So make sure you search #BoombergConnects on Instagram to see what we captured and posted!

Before your next Art Institute visit, check out their mobile app “Art Institute Tours”. It’s supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and offers FIFTY themed tours of the museum. It’s available in on both iPhone and Android.

A big thanks to The Art Institute, Bloomberg Philanthropies and instagrammer-organizers @kbucklandphoto & @brandonexplores for making this happen.
