Champaign County Museums Host Summer Photo Event

Posted: Updated:

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY – 11 museums of the Champaign County Museums at the Crossroads Consortium (MAC) are inviting museum patrons to take pictures of themselves in participating museums from July 15 to October 31.

Visitors are instructed to visit a participating museum to receive information and rules about the program. They will also receive a Consortium brochure with descriptions of each museum, along with their hours and addresses. Signs in each museum will suggest visitors take a selfie in that location.

Pictures taken in the museums can then be posted to the visitor’s Facebook page with the hashtag #MACnCheese2015. They can also “check in” to that museum’s location while posting their picture. Museums will share these pictures on their own museum pages and on the MAC website. Pictures must be submitted with the privacy setting of “public” to be used.

Participants who post a selfie from all 11 museums by the end of the program can contact Katie Riopelle of the Museum of the Grand Prairie for a small gift for their participation.

More information about the museums can be found by visiting the MAC website here. Additional details about the MAC ‘n’ Cheese Program can be obtained by contacting Katie Riopelle at 217-586-1279.
