Sculpture Milwaukee + CoPA photography competition calls for public vote
21 original photographs open for public voting on Wednesday, October 10
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Oct. 9, 2018)—Sculpture Milwaukee has teamed up with the Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) for a unique partnership. A new initiative in this year’s exhibition, the Sculpture Milwaukee + CoPA photography competition called for photographs of artworks from the Sculpture Milwaukee 2018 installation. CoPA members were encouraged to tap into their emotions, think outside the box and reflect on their unique impressions of the sculptures with their submissions.
Over 150 photo entries were submitted and reviewed by the CoPA Board of Directors, who selected a first round of 50 finalists. In a blind judging, jurors from CoPA, Sculpture Milwaukee, The Marcus Corporation and Graydient Creative narrowed the 50 entries down to 21 finalists. The 21 photographs selected will be open for public voting on October 10 via the Sculpture Milwaukee + CoPA photo competition voting platform.
Award winners will be announced on Saturday, October 20 at 10:30 a.m. at The Pfister Hotel, 424 E. Wisconsin Avenue. For more information, follow CoPA and Sculpture Milwaukee on Facebook, or visit www.sculpturemilwaukee.com and www.copamilwaukee.com.
