There are so many things that make you think of Campbell-the Campbell Water Tower, the Gaslighter Theatre, the various public art displays.
The Campbell Historical Museum and Ainsley House are launching its first community photography exhibit, called "The Spirit of Campbell" and are looking for submissions.
"We have a ton of historical collections and we thought it would be fun to look at the history through its people," says Campbell Historical Museum Collections Specialist Anna Rosenbluth. "We thought to involve the community to offer their images that capture more than just documenting a building but also elicit an emotion."
The exhibit asks Campbell residents to submit images that capture the spirit of Campbell through its people, places, and events. Images can be digital or analog, black and white or color. The only limitation is the size, 12X16 inches and all submissions must be framed and ready to hang.
"We're excited to see what people submit," Rosenbluth says.
The museum would like to exhibit the first 25 entries received in the Ainsley House exhibition from March 1-June 30, 2014, and allow the public to vote on, which image they feel best captures the Spirit of Campbell. The winning entry will be accessioned into the permanent collection of the museum.
In addition to public entries, the exhibition will highlight historical images from the permanent collection that reflect the people, places, and events of Campbell.
If you would like to participate please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for the guidelines and application form (Subject heading for email: “2014 Exhibition Application”). Due to limited space, only 25 entries will be accepted.
The first 25 entries received with the proper paperwork and that are ready to be hung will be accepted, so don’t delay! Only one entry per person.
