One of our favorite museum activities challenges our guests to caption paintings. Caption contests engage visitors with your collections, help them seek out personally relevant objects and stories, and get them imagining and even empathizing with the individuals portrayed in your museum.
Many visitors already do their own captions, and the Internet is filled with their awesome Art History Snapchats. We’ve rounded up our favorite snapchats from @arthistorysnap on Instagram. Check them out to get inspired — and go caption some paintings!
