Tyler Museum of Art
In 2010, the Tyler Museum of Art launched a new website and established a new presence online via social media outlets including Facebook and Twitter. A major part of their vision for the future of both the website and our social media presence is original video, produced entirely by the TMA. By purchasing two Flip MinoHD cameras and necessary support materials, they began shooting video and streaming exciting and enriching content to visitors of their website and friends who following the museum via social and digital media. The first production to be made possible through this grant was an interview with Texas contemporary artist Sedrick Huckaby, whose works will be on view during the upcoming exhibition A Legacy of Love & Freedom: Quilt Paintings by Sedrick Huckaby. This type of personal artist interaction both entertains and educates their digital community by offering them the opportunity to get to know the artists behind the works on view at the TMA.
