On March 24-26, we were proud to team up with Instagram to be a host site for their 15th World Wide Instagram Meet. Throughout the weekend, participants gathered at both our retail locations Apolis: Common Gallery, located in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles, and Apolis: Community Centre, located in Soho, New York City.
We were thrilled to open our shops to anyone passing through the neighborhood or those participating in the World Wide Instagram meet. We invited participants to engage in our Global Citizen Gallery, which showcased their imagery. We were happy to offer a $200 gift card to a randomly selected participant at both our retail locations.
Since we opened the doors of Apolis: Common Gallery, our first regionally-branded Apolis retail space in November 2011, we’ve always been inspired by the people around us. We are so proud of our community in both the Los Angeles Arts District and Soho, New York City. We’re privileged to be an active participant in the neighborhood, and welcome any opportunity to partner with companies, like Instagram, that bring people together.
We are so grateful for all who participated in the World Wide Instagram meet and shared with us in our Global Citizen Gallery.
