ArtBeat Radio, Arts in the Heart of Columbus!

Artbeat to me, is the life of Columbus. For two weeks, people come together and express themselves through their art. Me being originally from Augusta, Georgia I know of festivals like this such as Arts in the Hear. But Artbeat to me is special because of my involvement in it every year.

This week at the NPACE radio center I got to interview some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. Latino artist, sculpture artist , actors, dancers, chairmen of committees.

The key that I’ve learned from working on Radio with Josh Pate is in instances like this let him take over and do all the work!

No I’m just kidding, but the thing that really has people come alive on air is talking about their passion. Having them sit down and explain their life, their art, their angle. That is what really makes the whole thing pop.

Where else are people of different nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, and artistic taste going to meet up and become one for two weeks?

The answer is nowhere, nowhere but Artbeat.

Jennifer – Columbus Museum – So far, so good

Well, this week at the Museum has been quite an exciting one. We have accomplished so much, and I am finally starting to get the hang of things. We started off this week by meeting with Jennifer, who is in charge of the Museum Shop. We met with her to take pictures of items that we would feature on our Facebook page. We finished making a social media plan for the rest of this week and then began to start on next weeks. Our goal is to be a week ahead of schedule. I never knew how difficult and time consuming this would be. Then Ashley and I went to the Transformations part of the Museum and took pictures of art work that was done by some students in the school district. That was fun because I got to look at artwork.

Wednesday was a little different. After finishing up the social media plan for next week, I got to sit in on a meeting with Ashley with someone from Screen Vision. She was trying to sell advertising to the Museum, where our add would be in the movie theaters. It was interesting to see the cost of ads and how effective it is. Additionally, I helped Ashley with designs on special projects she was creating. I got to meet with our graphic designer to see how they talked about the different changes for an ad that would be in Southern Views Magazine. We talked about what would be best to put on the ad, and who would be more likely to look at it. It was interesting and fun!

I’m looking forward to Friday because we have two meetings set up. I like getting to interact with other people and see what Ashley does on a day to day basis.

Jennifer- Columbus Museum- My second week

So far this week at the Columbus Museum has been a busy one. On Monday, we began looking at different social media plans and trying to organize one for the Museum. I got to talk with people at other museums to see about some of their ideas for social media plans. My goal for this week was to be able to create posts for all four of the Museums Facebook pages and Twitter for next week. I made a calendar for each upcoming week and wrote down the days I wanted to post and about what and which Facebook page. I first had to think of all the upcoming activities and events and focus on when they were. That planning took up quite a good amount of time.

Wednesday when I arrived, I got to attend my very first staff meeting with all the other employees of the Museum. They introduced me in front of everyone. They showed a power point on safety and then talked about upcoming events and what not. Majority of today was spent talking to Ashley about the plans and adjusting some things. We also came up with new ideas for different posts. This week has really given me an idea as to all the hard work that goes into making social media work and come together. Whew!
