Our CMA Photo Hunts are back! Thanks to all who participated in the first series of CMA Photo Hunts based on our critically acclaimed The Radical Camera exhibition. Altogether we received nearly 900 submissions from more than 100 photographers. The resulting exhibition now on view through December 2012 includes more three dozen photos from nearly two dozen Columbus area photographers. The installation is the first museum show in the U.S. based on the popular photo sharing app Instagram.
This next round of assignments is based on our Making Faces, a family-friendly exhibition currently on view that explores portraits from CMA’s collection, and includes work by Diane Arbus, Roy Lichtenstein, and other noted artists. Watch for biweekly assignments here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (Look for additional assignments November 2, 2012; November 16, 2012, November 30, 2012, December 14, 2012, and December 28, 2012).
Here is your first Making Faces Photo Hunt assignment:
- In the spirit of the Halloween season, capture something that reflects the word “Masks”
- Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #Masks
- For this first Making Faces assignment you have until Friday November 02, 2012.
- Please note: images must be your own. Columbus Museum of Art
Once again our Photography Curator Catherine Evans will select her favorites (based on the most creative entries, and ones that best represent the theme), and your creation could grace the walls at Columbus Museum of Art.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this next series of Photo Hunts! Happy shooting!
