New CMA Photo Hunts Announced

The Wedding Skoglund

Our next series of CMA Photo Hunts are all about color. Thanks to all who participated in the first two series of CMA Photo Hunts. Since our Photo Hunts began we have received more than 2,000 submissions from hundreds of photographers. 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. The second CMA Photo Hunt exhibition is on display now in our Community Gallery, and features work selected by our William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography Catherine Evans.

This next round of assignments is inspired by color as the theme. Look for a new color-themed exhibition in our Big Idea Gallery this Spring featuring artists such as Frank Stella, Ed Ruscha, Edward Monet, Childe Hassam and more.  Watch for additional biweekly Photo Hunt assignments here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Here is your first color-themed Photo Hunt assignment:

  • Capture something that reflects “Red”
  • Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #Red
  • For this first Color assignment you have until Friday March 1, 2013.
  • Please note: images must be your own.

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!
