Previously artdc Gallery let the world know they think Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. They curated a list of Washington, DC area artists. There’s no limitation to medium or experience. This list represents a group of DC-area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geo-location and Twitter.
artdc is producing their third social media connected show. This is #WeTweetArt V3.0. In the past, they met to celebrate the growing connection of artists and art lovers on social media. They invited artists via twitter to join them for a mass art installation. As a result, a great number of artists installed work in the gallery on 2 occasions.
At the space, artists met the public face-to-face, and brought the life of the found on Twitter back to social media at that moment through live tweeting. It was a unique experience to see social interactions alive through smartphones, oddly quiet in a crowded room filled with the improvisational sounds of Sassoon.
As a result of the show, according to Topsy statistics, they saw over 1,000 tweets on a previously unused hashtag for each show.
