Snap Away with the Denver Art Museum’s New Snapchat Geofilter

Snapchat users get your phones ready. The Denver Art Museum has a new Geofilter you can now add to pictures you take in and around the museum. Simply turn on your location services and start sharing your snaps at the museum with friends, or post to “My Story,” which your friends and/or the public can view for up to 24 hours. It’s as easy as taking a photo, swiping right through the filters, and finding a creative interpretation of the DAM’s Hamilton and North Buildings in green and blue to add to your snap.

With this new Geofilter you can share your fun museum experiences within seconds. Elle Welch, communications and media relations coordinator at the DAM, says, “We were looking for a way to engage our younger visitors like teenagers and millennials while they’re onsite. The new Geofilter gives these audiences an opportunity to tag and share their experience at the DAM with friends and the public. We are one of the first landmarks in Denver to have a Geofilter. Did you know that four million snaps are sent every day? It’s exciting to know that the DAM is part of this movement.”

Here are some suggestions for fun places to Snapchat at the DAM:

1. The North Building stairwell (with different colored tiles)

2. The atrium in the Hamilton Building

3. The bridge connecting the North Building and the Hamilton Building

4. Super Indian: Fritz Scholder, 1967-1980

5. Mud Woman Rolls On on Level 5 of the North Building
