Led by Viewpoint Photographic Art Center – a non-profit organization located in Midtown Sacramento – and in collaboration with many involved partners including the City of Sacramento, the next Photography Month Sacramento is scheduled for April 2022. A variety of diverse and eclectic events are planned that include special exhibits, receptions, Open Call competitions, meet-ups, workshops, lectures, photo shoot gatherings, and more. Photography Month Sacramento creates a shared platform for galleries, museums, educational institutions, libraries, retail establishments, photographers, and patrons to celebrate and elevate the art of photography. Interested participants are encouraged to create or highlight their own exhibits, displays, lectures, receptions, workshops, demonstrations, temporary public art displays, art walks, photo shoot meet-ups, and other special events to help showcase the art of photography. First launched in 2018, the biennial collaborative visual arts celebration has expanded to include Sacramento, Placer, Nevada, Yolo, and El Dorado Counties.
How to Get Involved: Businesses, Museums & Organizations
Involvement in Photography Month Sacramento for businesses, museums and organizations is easy. The month-long regional showcase offers a great way to highlight visually enticing photographic programming already in place (maybe by incorporating a fresh visual element or hosting a special activation), introduce a concept in the planning stages, or create something unique to engage enthusiasts and connect with new audiences throughout the region.
How to Get Involved: Individual Photographers
Photography Month Sacramento is open to everyone – professional and amateur photographers alike – and offers wonderful opportunities to launch and/or exhibit photographic work, or to create a grassroots collaborative exhibit with friends interested in the visual art. Those interested are encouraged to get creative and plan individual activations and/or contact favorite local coffee houses or restaurants to see if they might host an exhibit or reception in April 2022.
Once any photography-related concepts are confirmed by businesses, organizations, museums or individuals, Photography Month Sacramento participants are encouraged to post information details about any upcoming events here, a community curated calendar that is connected to and supported by Sacramento365.com. For maximum awareness, exposure and collaboration opportunities, participants are encouraged to post information by December 31, 2021.
