CultureMap: Cinema Arts Festival Challenges Houstonians to Capture Bayou City Street Life on Instagram
While Houston is not a walking city, it’s rich in street scenes. Now anyone with a cell phone camera and an inquisitive nature can capture street life in the Bayou City and win a chance to attend the upcoming Houston Cinema Arts Festival for free.
The festival is highlighting street scenes in an exhibition highlighting adventurous media works and installations by experimental artists called Cinema on the Verge. The theme of this year’s exhibition is “Street Scenes,” with photographic and video works shown by four noted visual artists. The series begins with the exhibition opening and screening of street photographer Cheryl Dunn‘s film Everybody Street at The Brandon Gallery on Nov. 12.
To highlight the exhibition, organizers are asking Houstonians to participate in a street photography contest on Instagram. Photos can contain images of people, street art, objects or any scene which occurs in a street setting.
