Ryan King was invited to launch our Flickr photo sharing project for the very popular 2012 exhibition, African Cosmos: Stellar Arts at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art. As the lead on this media platform, he connected the museum with a global community of photographers, amateur and professional, from around the world during the run of the exhibition. His talent and dedication resulted in a great mashup of photographs of the African night sky that we were able to showcase in our main lobby pavilion. Thank you for an exceptional exhibition component that enhanced our public programming!
