Art Blogger Opportunity

Do you love Picasso? Do you love to blog? The Philadelphia Museum of Art just launched the blog you're reading now to celebrate the opening of the special exhibition, Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris, and we want you to be a part of it.

The Museum is looking for a select group of art-loving, socially-wired individuals to become part of our Picasso Posse blogger community. Bloggers will be involved in all aspects of the site, from writing posts on topics of their choosing, to helping film behind-the-scenes videos, to uploading photos and content that provokes buzz and commentary. Bloggers will also be encouraged to spread their knowledge and first-hand experiences at the Museum through Facebook, Twitter, and other content-sharing applications. The Museum’s blog is a new experiment in social media and bloggers will have a unique and exciting opportunity to shape its content from the ground up.

The blogger position is unpaid, yet those accepted into the Picasso Posse will have unlimited access to the Museum and its collection for the duration of the Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris exhibition.

To Apply:
*Submit a sample 250-word post on any topic related to Picasso
*Suggest 5 ideas for content you would create for the Museum’s blog
*List any relevant experience you have with blogging, including any blogs or sites that you currently host or write for.

Please submit materials as soon as possible to:
