Art in Bloom Photo Hunt Gallery

To celebrate Spring and our biennial Art in Bloom (where floral designers interpret museum masterpieces), we asked mobile photographers to give us their take on the theme witha  special Art in Bloom Photo Hunt. More than 250 photos were submitted in just six days.

Here are some of our favorites, as well as, a gallery of all the submissions.

Missed the Art in Bloom hunt? You can still be part of the online gallery. Tag your photographic take on the Art in Bloom theme with #ArtinBloomCMA on Instagram. You can use the Kirchner as your inspiration, or another museum masterpiece (let us know which one!).

CMA Photo Hunts are a digital complement to CMA collections and exhibitions, give participants an opportunity to flex their creativity, be inspired by works or themes in Columbus Museum of Art exhibitions or collections, and respond to creative challenges with their own visual take. Since our Photo Hunts began we have received more than 5,000 submissions from hundreds of photographers from Seattle to Ohio to Paris to Russia. CMA has presented four Photo Hunt exhibitions, and with our first Photo Hunt exhibition in 2012, we were first museum in the world to present a curated, crowdsourced installation based on the popular photo sharing app Instagram.

3rd Brandt Inspired Crowdsourced CMA Photo Hunt

Third Matthew Brandt inspired crowdsourced CMA Photo Hunt assignment. Hills Creek Lake by Brandy

The current round of CMA Photo Hunt assignments are inspired by our upcoming exhibition Matthew Brandt: Sticky/Dusty/Wet, the first museum show for the hot Los Angeles based photographer. Brandt processes his photos using nontraditional materials such as bubble gum, honey bees, Pop rocks, and more.

Here Brandt uses lake water in his large scale processing. So with that in mind, respond with your take on the third challenge:

  • Capture something that reflects  “Distressed” either in concept or process
  • Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #Distressed
  • For this third assignment you have until Friday October 25, 2013.
  • Please note: images must be your own. Anyone in the world can participate.

Once again our William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography Catherine Evans will select her favorites (based on the most creative entries, and ones that best represent the assignment), and your creation could grace the walls at Columbus Museum of Art. The third CMA Photo Hunt exhibition is on display now through November in our Community Gallery, and features work selected by Evans.

Since our Photo Hunts began we have received nearly 4,000 submissions from hundreds of photographers from Seattle to Ohio to Paris to Russia. With our first exhibition last fall, we were first museum in the world to present a curated, crowdsourced installation based on the popular photo sharing app Instagram.

Watch for additional biweekly Photo Hunt assignments here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
