Best bum contest

The headline may make you think this post is more salacious than it sounds, but I couldn’t help myself and apparently several museum curators cannot either.

Museums from around the globe each Friday take to Twitter to find which institution has on display the “best bum” as part of a weekly online battle between curators. Yorkshire Museum, in York, England, launched the search on social media in late June and the hashtag #BestMuseumBum on Twitter shows just how popular the contest has become. Below is a photo submitted by the Italian Museum The Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan from late June.

There is an absence of Boston area museums participating, and I would like to challenge curators from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Harvard Art Museum, Peabody Essex Museum and others to join in on this fun by posting a photo this Friday post on Twitter with the hashtag #BestMuseumBum. Be sure to also tag @YorkshireMuseum.
