Bring to Light: Philadelphia

Via Philadelphia Photo Arts Center

Goal

To encourage broader audience participation in the city's visual arts by expanding "Philly Photo Day 2012," where the community is invited to take and submit a picture that is ultimately used in an exhibition

Summary: To encourage broader audience participation in the city’s visual arts, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center will expand Philly Photo Day, where every member of the community is invited to take a picture on the same day for an exhibition. On Philly Photo Day – Oct. 26, 2012 – the center will distribute disposable digital cameras to community centers in underserved neighborhoods and send artists to teach residents how to use the cameras. In addition to the exhibition at the center, the captured images will be exhibited in public spaces throughout the city, including trains, buses and on billboards.
