By now we’ve all seen the images of the Tribute in Light put on by the Municipal Art Society of New York, but what about the Instagram version? The tag #tributeinlight already had some images that weren’t of the lights, so we set out to curate a series of NYC Instagramers who were moved to share their view.
At around 10:30pm, we posted a photo under a personal account and chose #wtclights as the tag to promote. We had already noticed that some of our Instagram friends were posting similar images, and after an hour, there were 17 tags. A few more encouraging comments later, we’ve topped out at 95 images as of this afternoon!
We then made an Instagrid of the same tag, you can view it here. You may not know it, but the Municipal Arts Society is currently raising money to keep the Tribute in Light as a permanent piece of art each year. We wholeheartedly agree and hope you can donate to the cause.
