Contest Rules


Everyone likes a good deal.

So do we. So here’s a chance for us to give you one.

Do you have an Instagram account on your smartphone? If the answer is yes, then you’re about halfway there. If not, download it… It’s a fun, simple and visual way to share what’s going on in your world.

Next, purchase an Akron Art Museum shirt. They’re awesome, extremely comfortable and have our logo in a metallic silver (the colors and sizes are listed below).

Here comes the deal part. Use your Instagram account; take a picture of someone wearing the shirt, (of course it can be a selfie) and post it.

Be sure to use the hashtag #aamshirt and get 15% off your next purchase when you shop at the museum. Make sure your privacy allow us to see it and direct message you.  We’ll direct message the coupon to your Instagram account. Simply show the coupon at the register and you’ll get your discount.

You’ll even get bonus points if you share it on Facebook and Twitter, but you can only get the discount if you use Instagram with #aamshirt. Sorry, points don’t actually matter, but we’d love to see you rockin’ the shirts all over social media.
