MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY PRESENTS INSTAGRAM JAM AND ADHESIVE LA - AN OFFICIAL MOPLA EXHIBITION HOSTED BY SMASHBOX STUDIO AND INDUSTRIAL COLOR
Smashbox Studios, 8549 Higuera St, Culver City, CA 90232
The return of the very popular Instagram Jam will feature the photography of well known and obscure photographers using Instagram to share their work. Month of Photo LA, a signature program of the Lucie Foundation will present the 8th annual festival this April and are delighted to announce installment number four of Instagram Jam, a curated print and projected exhibition featuring unique and interesting Instagrammers.
This project, originally conceived by photographer Shaughn Crawford (@ShaughnCrawford) speaks to MOPLA's mission celebrating the photographic image while also raising much needed dollars for Lucie Foundation's youth program, SNAPSHOP!, a four-week workshop program in collaboration with Los Angeles Unified School District which intends to nurture the photographic voices of underserved teens ages 13-18.
While the Instagram Jam Exhibition will feature a number of Instagram photographers selected by Shaughn Crawford, we will additionally have a simultaneous projection shown throughout the evening.
