Lawrence is well-known for its vibrant art scene, and many of our local artists, gallery owners and other creative types are using social media to get the word out about their activities and share their personalities with the community.
Technical director Nate Bunnyfield recruited a panel of local artists who are prominent not only among the arts & culture scene, but also in the social media community. The panelists will talk about their experiences as artists, small business owners and local citizens and how they’ve found their voice in social media.
Yesterday's Social Media Club of Lawrence drew a great crowd of social media enthusiasts who were willing to lend their expertise to the Pink It Up campaign.

Business are encouraged to "pink it up" during October by making their business pink in creative ways. The winning business will receive a free advertising package worth $15000 from 92.9 The Bull, the Lazer 105.9 and1320 KLWN.
