Free photography workshop and photo mural design opportunity for PhillyCAM members!
On Friday, October 18th, PPAC and the entire city will celebrate Philly Photo Day 2013! On that day, everyone in the city is invited to take a photograph and submit it to be included in a vast exhibition, featuring thousands of images to create an immense portrait of Philadelphia. Every photograph submitted will be printed and displayed in the exhibition from November 14th – December 28th.
Mark your calendar! Take and submit a photograph to Philly Photo Day on October 18th! Visit http://www.philaphotoarts.org/category/events/philly-photo-day/ for more information.
As a part of the exhibition, PPAC will produce as many as 60 works of public art! Teaching artists will collaborate with community center participants to design up to 20 of the city’s first digitally produced photo murals in conjunction the city’s Mural Arts Program. An additional 40 images will be selected and placed on billboards for the month of December.
