Social Media Breakfast Syracuse #10 Panel (with moderator Patrick Finlon, left)

Social Media Breakfast Syracuse #10 Panel: Kimberley McCoy, Rachel Boucher, Matthew De Bellas and Sarah Massett (with moderator Patrick Finlon, left).

This kind of collaboration is encouraging.

We finally got to attend a Social Media Breakfast here in town. The group had its latest meeting at Syracuse Stage on Thursday, and the focus was how arts organizations engage online.  Participants included representatives from The Red House, The Everson Museum, CNY Arts and Art Rage.

The discussion ranged from generating unique content and boosting awareness to using ”gamification” (rewards) and data collection methods to gain new followers/supporters. 

What was most impressive is that you didn’t have to be a savvy social media manager or represent an art venue to pick up pearls of wisdom from this conversation.   Quick, power-packed, yet very filling, it was like breakfast for your head.

This public art piece, located on the Hawley-Green neighborhood,is an homage to all things temporary. Torgerson’s work has also been displayed in NYC and Minneapolis.  She said the wheat paste works last from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the weather. Locally we’ve seen Torgersons’s pieces in Little Italy and Midtown.
