Capture Culture Club: Call for Artists

The Capture Culture Club Call for Artists, 2016

The Brick Store Museum needs your help! We are seeking donations of a single photograph from your portfolio to be reproduced as a print – as a fundraiser benefiting our nonprofit museum. Artists and photographers donating an original work will be listed on the Artist Registry at www.brickstoremuseum.org.

In 1936, American artist Edith Barry founded the Brick Store Museum. Barry traveled the world in the early 20th Century and captured culture through the lens of her camera. Through the Museum’s annual Photography Contest, we encourage others in our community to do the same. In 2016, we invite you to help us celebrate the Museum’s 80th Birthday with artwork of your own. Professional and amateur photographers alike are invited to submit one original digital photograph to the Museum prior to May 13, 2016. Please see the guidelines below to learn more about photo submission. Your donated artwork helps the Museum to continue its work as advocate for the arts and education in our community.

A $45 ticket purchase guarantees an original photographic print, drawn at random, to take home, during the June 30th 1930s-style Cocktail Party celebrating the Museum’s 80th year as a community landmark.

Guidelines:

Deadline for submissions: Friday, May 13, 2016

To submit:

Step One:

Please email your photo to dwilliams@brickstoremuseum.org, and in the body of your email please list: your name, studio (if applicable), website (if applicable), mailing address, phone number, title of your piece, location of photo, and the date it was taken.

Step Two:

Please deliver your print on the material you choose (framed or frame-ready) by 5:00pm on Friday, May 13th. Your donation will be acknowledge with an in-kind donation letter that can be included in your tax information to your tax preparer.

Submitted work can be of the subject you choose, but must be family-friendly. Size of the print is up to you; the shortest side must be at least 7″ long.
