Here is your last Making Faces CMA Photo Hunt assignment:
- Capture something that reflects the word mysterious.
- Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #mysterious
- Tag by Tuesday January 1, 2013.
- Please note: images must be your own; while preference may be given to Ohio-based photographers, anyone in the world can participate.
This version of Photo Hunt assignments are based on Making Faces, our exhibition currently on view in the Family Gallery that explores portraits from CMA’s collection, and includes work by Diane Arbus, Roy Lichtenstein, Miro, and other noted artists.
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 be part of the next CMA Photo Hunt installation this January 2013. Look for Instagram notifications the week of January 3, 2013 for the last round of selections. We’ve already notified many of you for the first round of selections (check your IG messages and emails!).
Altogether we received nearly 900 submissions from more than 100 photographers from the first CMA Photo Hunt installation. The resulting exhibition now on view through December 31, 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. Read more about the inception of the Photo Hunt project in stories in The Columbus Dispatch, Art Daily, and Clic France, and Columbus Alive, and view the NBC4 story.
To see a collection of all the images that have been submitted since the inception of our Photo Hunts, view the CMA Photo Hunt Online Gallery.
Be sure to follow us on Instagram at columbusmuseum where we’ll also be highlighting some of our favorites. And save the evening of January 17, 2013. We’ll be doing another CMA Photo Hunt reception!
