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
  8. Then, there was that one time I have my first ever gallery talk at a museum!
  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:
  10. At the Pollock Krasner house!
    (Research grant project)
  11. At the Guggenheim!
    (Work trip)
  12. With Les Demoiselles!!
  13. With Gas Mask Madonna!
    By Tschacbasov
  14. With a Giddy selfie outside Christie's!!
    First auction! Just an eager spectator taking lots of notes
  15. Touching some Oscar Murillo!
    Pure joy
  16. And last but so not the house which inspired American Gothic
    10/10 worth the trip to Iowa
