OVERVIEW

Why Photography Month?

It is increasingly important in an age of media inundation to encourage purposeful displays of photography by artists seeking to share a story or a moment of beauty. Photography Month creates new opportunities for galleries, museums, educational institutions, photographers and patrons to share a collective experience in the visual arts, which is engaging and highly accessible.

What is Viewpoint Photographic Art Center’s Role?

Viewpoint serves as the nerve-center for Photography Month by developing and orchestrating events, creating collaborations, seeking funding and helping to spreading the word.

How Will It Work?

Through a series of events and hands-on activities, scheduled throughout our region, Photography Month will create a new bi-annual event for the visual arts.

Participating museums, galleries, schools, businesses and more, will create their own exhibits, lectures, workshops and events to celebrate the art of photography. The month long calendar of events will be posted on this web site under Events and on the web sites of all the participating organizations

Who’s Participating?

Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and Nevada Counties will be creating programming for the second Photography Month April 2020. All are welcome and encouraged to create programming for this month long celebration of photography.
