Edith Barry, the Museum’s founder, was born in 1884. Until her death in 1969, she traveled the world taking photographs of new cultures, old traditions, amazing sights, and familiar scenes. Now, it’s your turn to capture culture.

In 100 years, what photographs will be displayed at the Brick Store Museum? What defines our culture today? What about our culture do you think needs to be captured for the future? These are great questions to ask in your quest for photographs. The contest was open to submissions from July 12 through September 16th, 2016.
Winners were announced in each category – as well as a Visitors’ Choice – at the end of September. The Grand Prize winner received a Family membership to the Museum. All submissions were placed on the Museum’s Facebook page and Pinterest boards. Encourage your friends and family to visit us on the web to vote for their favorite photos! Entry is free to this contest. Please consider making a donation with your photos. The Museum’s programs are funded by supporters and participants like you!
Now it’s your turn – go out and capture culture!
