Disposable cameras were given to members of the art community from artists to critics to curators to collectors to gallerists, to use at their “leisure.” After the summer, each camera will be signed by the participant and returned to White Columns. Each participant’s photos will be developed, exhibited in a photo album and then raffled off. Raffle tickets are $200. In early October we will throw a cocktail party with a drawing to determine which album and signed camera each ticket holder has won. All proceeds will go to support the programs of White Columns.
Nothing like “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” has ever been done before, and we believe it is a wonderful way to bring different members of the art community together to emphasize the importance of alternative art spaces in general and White Columns in particular.
