Channel(s): Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube

Results: The Art Everywhere US campaign used images of 50 famous pieces of art in special outdoor installations around the country.

They could also photograph themselves at the public installations and post pictures to their favorite social media channels using the hashtag #ArtEverywhereUS. In total, the campaign received over50 million social media impressions, 1,000 mentions in the mainstream media, and drew the attention of several members of Congress.
