This next round 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. Watch for biweekly assignments here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (Look for additional assignments November 16, 2012, November 30, 2012, December 14, 2012, and December 28, 2012).
Here is your second Making Faces Photo Hunt assignment:
- Capture something that reflects the phrase “Funny Face”
- Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #FunnyFace
- Tag by midnight Friday November 16, 2012.
- Please note: images must be your own; while preference may be given to Ohio-based photographers, anyone in the world can participate.
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.
Altogether we received nearly 900 submissions from more than 100 photographers from the first round of CMA Photo Hunts. 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. 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.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this next assignment! Happy shooting!
