Happy Museum Selfie Day!

While the more curmudgeonly among us continue to grumble about the mass usage of cell phone cameras in the hallowed halls of art, museum professional Mar Dixon and website Culture Themes have declared today a celebration of the museum selfie and are encouraging selfie lovers to take to Twitter and post their favorite photos from exhibitions past and present. Jay Z already struck a pose today at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. Have some selfies of your own?
