"Lost Along The Way - Street Finds"
Show dates: May 19-July 2
Submissions due: April 29
Discarded as trash or perhaps just lost along the way as you walk the sidewalks, streets and alleys of York. The Parliament is seeking photographs of items you've found along the way for its Street Finds show. We are also encouraging artists to create art using what they've found as well.
Accepted pieces will be printed by the Parliament either as photos or canvas to be hung, with the artist having the option to buy it back at cost.
Instagram tie-in: Join in on the fun ahead of and during the show by snapping your street finds and sharing them with us on social media using #ParliamentStreetFinds. To have your photograph in the show, you will need to save the ORIGINAL photo on your phone for submission. Instagram photos are too small to reproduce well.
Please send the following information to Kate Harmon at firstname.lastname@example.org

- Up to 10 images that clearly depict the artwork. All files must be named as follows: First name Last name_Title of piece_Medium_Height x Width.jpg (Example: John Smith_Untitled_Mixed Media_10x14.jpg).
