If You Have Pretty Nature Pics, You Should Send Them To The Figge
As part of a celebration of an American impressionist artist, the Figge Art Museum wants you to send them your nature photos.
It's the Figge's showcase called John Leslie Breck: An American Impressionist. The Figge wants your nature pictures of just about any setting, whether it be a particularly good one of your backyard, maybe one of the river, a cool picture of nature you took on a hike, etc.
Figge will display the pictures on their Facebook page and on a slideshow at the museum. The Figge prefers pictures that have a good resolution (300 DPI, don't send them the blurry stuff).
You can email the pictures with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can hashtag #BreckFiggePhotography on Insta.
Your deadline to get pictures sent in is June 30, so start snapping or go through your camera roll! Maybe go on a hike or float this weekend and remember to take a few pics.
John Leslie Breck: An American Impressionist is at the Figge through August 28. This photography project is inspired by photos taken by Margaret Perry of Giverny, France. They were some of the earliest pictures of the French village and Giverny was an inspiration for Breck's paintings.
Also going on at the Figge, the museum will have an exhibition focusing on American city life called Urban Exposure. It will be on the Figge's second floor in the Katz Gallery and will start on June 25th and will remain at the museum until September 18th.
