The latest “-ism” (or movement) in art are images which we tweet and re-tweet, visually reacting to our environment.  Be a part of the “-ism” at the ISM during Old Canal Days weekend.  First, view the exhibition Fragile Relations: Art, Nature, and Environment at ISM Lockport.  Then, respond to any one (or two, or three) of the art on display by creating your own photos relating to a favorite piece that you see and post the image through ISM Lockport’s Twitter feed.  Don’t have a Twitter account, submit pics to our Facebook page or via email to the staff and they’ll add it for you.  Specific instructions will be available at the Museum.  Offered during Old Canal Days 2013.
