The Laib Wax Room has been a visitor favorite since its installment in 2013. In this month’s ArtGrams, we’re highlighting some of your creative shots of the space.

Via Instagrammer @jfg2003 “Nice one @giacometti.”

We’ve noticed that visitors are quite interested in Alberto Giacometti’s Monumental Head and have been snapping creative photos since it went back on view in our galleries a few months ago. In this month’s installment of ArtGrams (see the first and second installments from previous months), we’re highlighting some of our favorite shots, angles, and interactions with the sculpture.

We’ve been loving all of the incredible submissions to our InstaManRay in-gallery experience inspired by Man Ray’s photos of mathematical equations. Visitors to Man Ray–Human Equations can snap photos of 3D printed mathematical models and share them via Instagram (see a previous roundup here).

Some of our favorites have been photos that use the mathematical objects as frames. What do you spy in these photos? See more by following the projects Instagram account @InstaManRay2015 or #InstaManRay.
