FROM OUR BLOG / Nasher Museum student intern Sophie Cummins writes, "As a 20-year-old college student constantly plugged in to technology, I realize how much social media has changed how all types of groups—including museums—advertise, present themselves, and brand themselves to the public. I was tasked with the assignment of making a “stop-motion video” for Instagram." More.
