The term ‘Instagrammer’ was first coined in 2008, when entrepreneur Sean O’Mara launched his personal style account with that name. Since then, the platform has seen its share of success, while also creating a new generation of influencers who reap large profits off of their followers.
Many people make a living solely through posting pictures on the app, gathering significant followings and receiving constant engagement from users. It is truly undeniable now how powerful an influence this medium can be!
But there are also many others out there who use the site to achieve different goals. Some create content for themselves (blog posts, vlogs, etc.) or gain online income by offering services like designing, editing, or taking overhanging shots for business profiles.
There have been even more creative ways to utilize the platform to spread a message or increase awareness for a cause. A few examples include @truelifeforzero, which raises money and awareness for suicide prevention, and #LiveLoveTravel, a way to promote self-love after the death of celebrity icon Carrie Fisher.
In this article you will learn about eight unique uses of Instagram that do not feature advertisements. Some are totally free, some cost nothing extra, and one may require you to purchase certain products, but they are all worth it because they improve your overall well-being.
Exhibits focus on contemporary art
While some people may consider painting to be an artistic form, it is really just you creating pictures of things or scenes using paint. A more appropriate term for this type of artwork is creative expression.
Artists today use technology and media to convey their message in new ways. A common example of this are street artist’s uses of spray paint as a tool to express themselves. Others create music, film, or literature that they feel passionately about, so they put aside time to produce their work. This passion can come from nature, life, politics, religion, or anything else.
These artists devote hours to producing their piece which makes them invested in their craft enough to know what works and doesn’t. This expertise is what makes their work special and worthy of our attention.
There are many types of exhibits that feature creative expressions. Some are focused on still lifes, landscapes, and abstract designs, while others look at current events through a political lens or ask interesting questions.
The gallery opened in 2005
In November of that year, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Los Angeles held its first major survey exhibition, “The New Spirit: Abstract Painting and America”. This show was significant because it not only focused on a specific era and style, but also tackled an underrepresented national group- American artists.
Abstract expressionism is considered one of the main branches of modern art, so showing examples from this style was important to define the term for visitors who may not be familiar with it. Many well known artists such as Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock are linked to this genre, which features bold colors and shapes juxtaposed together.
Prior to the 1970s, most abstract paintings were characterized by strong narratives or symbolic content. Starting around the mid-1970s, however, many contemporary painters rejected narrative altogether in favor of pure form. A defining feature of abstract painting today is the use of color alone to create images. Artists use various techniques to apply paint onto their canvas, leading to a variety of styles.
At the MCA LAC, several works featured patterns generated through repeated brush strokes along different axes.
Exhibits change regularly
Recent exhibits at The Center include “The Politics of Silence,” an examination of censorship in America through various mediums; “Why Are We Having A Revolution?”, exploring how social movements are fueled by discontent and hope for transformation; and “It Is Time To Take Back Power,” looking at ways we can take back our neighborhoods, communities, cities, and countries from big corporations and wealthy elites.
A recent exhibit that received a lot of attention is called “Healers Speak Out! Healing Systems You Never Heard Of.” It features more than 20 artists who explore different systems of health and wellness such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Unfolding Destiny Therapy, Heilkunst (art therapy), Lymphatic drainage, nutritional coaching, and meditation practices.
Many of these practices have been integrated into Western medicine but they haven’t had a proper name until now. These alternative therapies go beyond what most people consider traditional medical treatments like acupuncture or nutrition counseling. They are often described as holistic or complementary because they focus not only on treating the symptoms of illness but also on improving overall well-being.
This exhibition was organized by artist Dina Yankowitz, who has a background in both art and health. As a child, she suffered from severe asthma and digestive issues which made it difficult to eat solid foods. At age 10, her doctor suggested yoga as a possible solution.
You can find the gallery on East 17th Street
Located in the South Loop, The Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) is one of Chicago’s most well-known art museums. With over 250 exhibitions every year, MoCA offers an eclectic mix of artwork for all to see.
The museum was founded in 1984 by Joan Sheldon and Richard Koshimka. Since then it has grown into one of America’s leading contemporary art institutions with annual attendance exceeding two million people.
Visitors can choose to spend time exploring several different exhibition areas or take part in one of MoCA’s many educational programs. There are also frequent artist talks and events hosted at the museum.

The gallery has received positive reviews
Since its opening in February, the art gallery has been busy with visitors coming to see it. Many artists have given their feedback about how they enjoyed visiting the space and showcasing their work. Some even made an effort to visit the exhibition after being invited as a guest artist!
One of the featured artists, Ben Mascetti, said he ‘loved meeting so many people that wanted to check out my work’. He added that he loved talking to other local artists and getting their input on his work.
He also mentioned how motivating it was for him to be able to showcase his work and meet others who shared his passion for making art.

An “Exhibit Website” is an excellent way to promote your business, product, or service. By creating a free web page that features pictures and information about your products and services, you can increase online traffic to your site and boost engagement.
Most people these days have access to a smartphone with a high-quality camera, so taking and editing photos of your products is no longer a difficult task.
By using quality photo editing software, you do not need to be a professional photographer to create beautiful images. You can easily improve upon pre-existing designs and add some personal touches.
On July 17, 2017, Life in A Day launched their first ever Exhibition. The exhibition focused on how well someone would do as a parent if they were raised by wolves for a year.
Their Instagram account @lifeinaday has over 250,000 followers who get inspired every day by the daily updates. Many of these posts are just one or two photographs but they are always telling a story.
Life in A Day has helped many parents learn from each other’s experiences, whether it is advice on how to handle discipline, tips on what types of foods work best, or simply inspiring messages.
Get in touch with the gallery
After you have done some research, gathered your belongings, and found a space that feels right, it is time to contact the artist!
Most galleries will let you know how they would like to be contacted via their website or social media sites. They may even ask you to send them an email or call them directly for more information!
Artists’s mailing addresses are usually accessible through their websites or by looking up business records. If there is no clear way to get in touch with them, try asking around at local art stores or museums to see if anyone knows who they are!
General rules about being ethical when buying art include not using aggressive means to make a sale, and always confirm that the seller owns what they claim before paying over the price- this goes both ways (seller confirms ownership as well as authenticity of the piece).
