Have you been inspired by one of the art pieces installed around downtown Farmington or in Farmington Hills?
How about reenacting a scene from your favorite piece for a chance to win a one-year membership to the Detroit Institute of Arts?
That's what organizers are looking for in their Inside|Out Photo Contest.
To enter, snap a photo of yourself, your friends, your family members or anyone else with one of the Inside|Out reproductions on display and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and the title of the photo in your email.
Photos will be judged on their creativity in connecting with the subject matter of the artwork. Entrants are encouraged to reenact a scene from the Inside|Out work they include in their photo.
The deadline is June 22.
(If you've got a photo to enter, you also can add it to this story, or our Pics & Clips gallery, so your friends and neighbors can see, too.)
