8 #Instagram-Ready Art Attractions That Prove the #Museum of #IceCream Was Just the Beginning
Many have lamented, few have praised, but everyone is beginning to notice that rather than a fleeting trend, the spate of #InstagramCentricArt experiences is now a bona fide industry—and according to #TheAtlantic, a hot area of employment for the post-Millennial generation. In the age of what #artnet New’s critic Ben Davis calls #BigFunArt, the most popular way to consume culture is through these immersive, fun, Photo Friendly installations where the barrier to entry may be time and money, but not any particular command or interest in #ArtHistory.
In our minds, the wellspring of this candy-colored cultural vogue is the Museum of Ice Cream. The #MOIC’s colossal success—it just won a #WebbyAward for Best Overall Social Presence (Brand)—has inspired a raft of other such attractions, veritable #Pinterest boards come to life. #TheMuseumOfIceCream debuted in the summer of 2016 as a pop-up in #NYC’s #MeatpackingDistrict, the brainchild of Parsons grad Maryellis Bunn and former Wall Street vet #ManishVora; since then the duo have brought their curated confection to #LosAngeles, SanFrancisco, and #Miami, with plans to expand further.

The #MOIC’s formula has struck a chord with creative-producers who are replicating everything from the limited quantity of tickets (at $38 a pop), photogenic color palette, and flattering lighting for their own #ventures. The piece de resistance, the proverbial cherry on top, is to have a giant container filled with adorably miniature objects where visitors can romp, make snow angels, and live out childhood fantasies of #WillyWonka-style surreality.
What are essentially curated stage sets are cropping up from coast to coast. In June, New York is expecting the debut Museum of Candy from the Kardashian-endorsed Sugar Factory. #BlackExcellence #Hot97 #2FlyPromotion
