Akron, Ohio – The Summit County Historical Society is seeking photo submissions for the “Summit County Winter Wonder” photo wall to be displayed at the Summit County Courthouse in downtown Akron.
Photos will be accepted until January 20th. To be eligible for the wall, the photo must be taken in Winter Summit County. According to the society, the photos are selfies, group photos, or shots of historical or meaningful places.
The Historical Society encourages photographers to include a brief summary of the photo and what the place means to them, along with the name. The selected photo will be linked to a QR code that will be placed in the image panel for final installation. A QR code allows visitors to learn more about the image and photographer. Photo size must be between 1 MB and 4 MB. They can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Historical Society’s exhibit space at the Courthouse is part of the Curated Courthouse initiative. This is a collaboration between Summit County Probate Court and Curated Storefront to showcase curated art on site. The goal of this initiative is to provide “rest and well-being” for employees, attorneys and visitors to the often stressful environment of the courts. According to his website at Curated Storefront, Featured Art aims to provide an audience for a diverse and underserved artist. This initiative is funded in part by the Knight Arts Challenge of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
