Digital strategists Andrew Lih and Steffen Kaplan will lead a “walking workshop” during the afternoon of Friday, March 20, 2020.  The group (free to people who sign up for the event; see details below) will visit two of New York City’s notable museums. Participants will have a short gallery tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and another museum (to be announced). Andrew and Steffen will demonstrate important phone camera techniques and must-have apps. In addition museum professionals at the participating institutions will give more quick tips for creating visual content for your social media.

The walkabout is free — but the number of participants is limited. Watch this page for information about how to sign up
