Museum of Selfies coming to L.A.

It’s official. Selfies are now an art form.

In fact, the Museum of Selfies is coming to Southern California this spring.
The exhibit opens April 1st and will be located at 211 N. Brand Boulevard in Glendale.  It closes May 31st.
The museum bills itself as “an interactive museum that explores the history and cultural phenomenon of the selfie – an image of oneself taken by oneself – with roots dating back 40,000 years”
California game designers Tommy Honton and Tair Mamedov tell The Guardian they came up with the idea last year after learning that more people take selfies with Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa in the Louvre in Paris than photograph the artwork itself.
The world’s longest selfie stick will be on view. And, while other museums may have banned them, selfie sticks aren’t just allowed inside, they’re encouraged.

You can buy a ticket for $25 online.
