Oh So Sweet CMA Photo Hunt Challenge 2

Gummy Bears 5, 2012 (Low-res)Brandt

We’re super impressed with your response to the first Matthew Brandt inspired challenge. These 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 gummy bears in his large scale processing. So with that in mind, respond with your take on the second challenge:

  • Capture something that reflects  “Sweet” either in concept or process
  • Tag your work on Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #Sweet
  • For this second assignment you have until Friday October 11, 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.
