The Modern's first #emptymodern InstaMeet

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107



Continuing with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth's Instagram initiative, #emptymodern, the community is invited to participate in an InstaMeet at the "empty Modern." The museum is closed to the public Saturday morning, therefore the participants have the opportunity to venture through the museum and grounds unimpeded. They may snap away with their favorite smartphone or camera. All the photos the participants upload to Instagram will be tagged #emptymodern @themodernfw. The goal of this initiative is to showcase new perspectives on the Modern to the public, grow #emptymodern and Modern followers, as well as support our participants as they build their followers. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth partnered with photographer Olaf Growald to begin the #emptymodern initiative using Instagram in October 2014.
