If it weren't for this prompt I wouldn't have realized how many dorky art gallery profile pics I've used over the years. In chronological order, a journey through me documenting art stuff with profile pics.
  1. This was my first ever profile pic: I was in high school, had just learned that performance / installation art was a thing, and I thought this made me the coolest kid on Facebook

  2. This accidentally set a precedent for art-related profile pics. Here are some highlights from the "trying very hard to be that art historian on Facebook" phase, end of high school/freshman year of college:

  3. Contemplative yearbook illustrating in the woods. #deep

  4. I'm sure no one has ever thought to take this picture inside this giant head. I thought this was #surreal

  5. Someone duct-taped a broken mirror to the pain studio's supply closet, allowing for some #edgy #artsy photo ops

  6. Then a trip to the AIC prompted a shift to #contemplative art history profile pics

  7. And of course, #meta ones

  9. This year of art profile pics gave way to a few years of normal profile pic fodder, before returning to regular programming. In Art History Profile Pic Phase: The Sequel, we have a junior-year art history major who is just plain excited about art. Geekery ensues:
