“It’s time to review the photographs you’ve taken throughout the year and get them ready to share in a show at the Massillon Museum,” said Emily Vigil, who helps coordinate and install the exhibitions in the Massillon Museum’s Lower Level Lobby.
The public is invited to submit photographs April 5 through April 17 during regular Museum hours for Clicking for a Cause, which will be on view between April 30 and June 15, 2022.
The exhibition is intended to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Photographers will donate their work for the exhibition. Each image will be offered for sale at $25; that entire amount is directed to the American Cancer Society when a photograph is purchased.
Travel, nature, still life, action, human interest, portraits, and creative images in color and black and white are all welcome. Photographs must be 8×10 images secured within 11×14 mats. Many will be installed on the walls; remaining photographs will be available for viewing in a rack in the Museum’s lobby. Visit massillonmuseum.org for donation specifications. Unsold work may be picked up at the end of the show.
A free public reception will be held during Massillon’s Last Saturday event, April 30, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., when MassMu will extend its hours.
A former Relay for Life volunteer, Jan Jordan has spearheaded this initiative for more than a decade. She encourages photographers to bring as many images as they wish. “We want to show off your artwork and raise money for an important cause. We’re looking forward to enthusiastic participation again this year.”
The Massillon Museum receives operating support from the Ohio Arts Council and ArtsinStark, as well as marketing support from Visit Canton. This project is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East (Ohio Route 172) in the heart of downtown Massillon. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. A visit to the Massillon Museum is always free.
