Spencer Museum of Art celebrating 35th birthday with historical photos on Twitter


If you like glimpses into KU's history (and who doesn't?), you might keep an eye on the Spencer Museum of Art Twitter feed today.

The museum opened 35 years ago today, and it's promising to share photos from its history throughout the day via a medium that, back then, would have surely seemed quite incomprehensible: Twitter. It started with the poster advertising its Jan. 17, 1978, grand opening.

It's also inviting museum visitors past and present to share their Spencer memories, using the hashtag #SMA35.

So, send your art-gazing memories there. And send your KU news tips here: merickson@ljworld.com.
