CALL FOR ART:
"24" Juried Photography Exhibition
April 13 - May 12, 2018
Juror: Shane Wynn, Local Photojournalist & Fine Art Photographer
Neighborhoods are often as unique as the artists who tell their stories through photographs. Each neighborhood is made unique by its people, its businesses and its history. To honor and celebrate the 24 Akron neighborhoods, photography highlighting any of the 24 neighborhoods in Akron will be considered for inclusion in the exhibit simply titled “24”.
Photographs may reflect what makes the neighborhood distinctive, represents living in a neighborhood or intimately reflects passion, pride, hope or despair as captured by the artist. The images can be historical or new work generated specifically for the show. Historical work must be represented by the original artist. All submissions need to include the address represented in the photograph.
A complete list of all 24 Akron neighborhoods can be found at http://www.akronohio.gov/cms/Akron_Neighborhoods_Updated/neighborhoods_akron_2016_85x11mxd.pdf.
The exhibition is open to artists residing in or attending school in the following Ohio counties: Summit, Cuyahoga, Medina, Stark and Portage. Unfortunately, if you do not live in or attend school in one of these counties, we are unable to consider your work.
