INSIDE OUT Photo Project | 1 to 4:30pm | Outdoors, East end of Museum

The Inside Out Photo Project is a global participatory art project that allows everyone to share their untold stories by creating a work of art. Participants will express themselves through large-scale photo portraits and audio recordings. On Harvest Welcome Day, visitors are invited to have their portrait taken in the photo truck, which will later be installed on the Museum’s north façade.

The Project: A Portrait of our Community – We live in an exceptionally beautiful and unique community! We want to create a visual and audio portrait of what is special about where we live – who our neighbors are and what they love about our community.
