This is what I do at my day job (awesome, right?). The basic story behind the site is that Steppenwolf commissioned a report on social media tactics that big brands were using to attract young audiences, implemented a lot of the ideas, and was really successful. The awesome part is that Steppenwolf and Doris Duke, who funded the research, were totally down with writing up a short version of the research and sharing it with other arts orgs for free so that everyone could benefit.

The story is a great example of large orgs sharing resources with smaller orgs in our open source culture, and the ebook is a really helpful tool for arts orgs (or any orgs) creating social media strategy.

The full press release is at, but http://tippingtheculture is fun and has a little background and then the free download, available in full in ePub or pdf, and then also by individual chapter in pdf.

Pass it on and let me know what you think!

5/8/2010 7:27:25 Invest in Art?

There was a time when art was valued because it was aesthetically pleasing and because it brought grand ideas into public discourse. In modern times, art is also gaining value as an investment – not just as a long-term source of goodwill, but as a short-term source of quick profits. Over the past ten years, the art market has shown volatility similar to that of the stock market, and yet some of the prices that works of art have yielded at market have made it an attractive investment asset class. Indeed, the art industry has a worth in excess of $3 trillion with an annual purchasing and selling of over $30 billion – and the returns are often just as lucrative as those in the stock market, if not more so.
