ArtGrams: Step Right Up

In this month’s installment of ArtGrams, Instagrammers prove there are no limits of where to find beauty. We love how so many people find great inspiration in the mixture of stark angles with soft curves in the museum’s spiral staircase in the Goh Annex. Here are some of our favorite images that capture the stairway’s distinctive design.
