Share YOUR FloGris Moment

 

Visitors of all ages are invited to find (and photograph) their “own” Florence Griswold Museum. In the spirit of the upcoming exhibition, In Place: Contemporary Photographers Envision a Museum (October 1, 2016-January 29, 2017), we are asking our visitors to share their own distinct vision of the Museum.

Like the commissioned photographers, visitors can look inside and outside, find their quintessential Florence Griswold Museum moment, and capture it with a camera, smart phone, or tablet.

A selection of submissions will be shared digitally in the exhibition and on the Museum’s website.

We will take submissions through the end of the show, January 29, 2017.

You will not be notified that your photos are used, please check back. Photos will be uploaded monthly.

Your first name, last initial, and city and state will be listed on social media. Your full name will be listed on the Museum’s website.

How to Participate:

Send your very best images (limit two) to pix@flogris.org with “My FloGris Museum Moment” in the subject line. Images must be at least 5 x 7 inches at 300dpi and sent as .jpg attachments. Please do not embed images or send links to photo galleries. By sending these images to the Florence Griswold Museum you are giving the Museum permission to use your photos (uncredited) in marketing materials and publications.

1. your name

2. your city or town of residence

3. age if under 18
