UPDATED: GLENN GOLDBERG Photo A Week Challenge



If you’re like us, you’re always looking for inspiration. Recently, we decided to relaunch our Instagram and what better place for inspiration than the walls of an art gallery? Seeing something in a painting or sculpture makes you notice the beauty of things that you come across in everyday life. And that’s why we decided to put the challenge out to you to capture that something with a photo challenge inspired by our latest exhibition, Glenn Goldberg: Of Leaves and Clouds.

Glenn Goldberg’s works have a common feature: his ever-present dots over light washes of color creating multiple layers within each composition. His signature marks not only structure the space, but also are a record of his concentrated attention, time and devotion. His work ethic is apparent in the extraordinary details of layered textures he achieves. He draws his inspiration from nature, jazz music, textile design, African and Asian art, and decorative arts.

So, how does this photo challenge thing work? It’s easy:
  • Each Monday, we’ll post a detail from one of Glenn Goldberg’s pieces that inspires us and give you a prompt based on that. [In case you want to plan ahead, there’s a graphic above that outlines the prompts for the next 12 weeks.]
  • Use our prompt, and the art that inspired it, to think creatively and snap your own photo.
  • Post your photo to your Instagram account with the hashtag #GGphotoaweek.
  • [UPDATE] Each Monday, we’ll look through all the photos you’ve posted with #GGphotoaweek from the previous week and choose a winner! We’ll repost that photo on our Instagram account instagram.com/bradygallery 
What do I need in order to do this? Just a phone with a camera and an Instagram account. No fancy photography skills required. (Although we’re interested in seeing what some of our professional photographer friends come up with!)  Keep the prompt in the back of your mind and when inspiration strikes, snap a pic and post it.

Are there prizes for the winners? Yes! We’ll announce the prize each Monday and contact the winner after we choose the winning photo.

Of course the best way to gain inspiration from these pieces is to see them in person. Glenn Goldberg: Of Leaves and Clouds is on view through April 14, 2017. We’re open 10:00 AM-5:00 PM, Tuesday - Friday.

About

Washington, District of Columbia, United States
"Found In Collection" or simply "FIC" is the way many museums classify the more mysterious items in their possession that have little or no documentation. Here at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery of the George Washington University, we do keep extensive records of our collection, but some of the items we come across in academic buildings or our own storage can leave us wondering. This blog is an effort to showcase some of the more curious examples and their stories, and to provide a glimpse of the great variety of art pieces within the collection. To learn more about the Brady Gallery's history, recent exhibitions, or the George Washington University, take a look at the links below.
