“Columbus Museum of Art, and the #JJ COMMUNITY, one of the world’s most active communities of photographers, present #MobilePhotoNow the largest mobile photography exhibition ever organized by a museum. #MobilePhotoNow highlights the emerging art form of mobile photography, and the power of social media and smart phones as a means of creative expression and connection. CMA and #JJ COMMUNITY, partnered throughout October to post themed photo challenges that engaged the mobile photography community. More than 5,000 photographers from 89 different countries submitted nearly 45,000 images via Instagram. The resulting global exhibition co-curated by CMA and #JJ features 320 photos from nearly 240 photographers representing nearly 40 different countries. The exhibition is the next evolution in CMA’s ongoing initiative to connect people to art and each other. In 2012, CMA was the first museum to present an exhibition drawn entirely from Instagram. CMA used its critically acclaimed exhibition The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League, 1936 – 1951 as the inspiration for a series of photo hunts based on the assignments the original Photo League artists gave one another. The hunts generated more than 800 submissions and gave life to an installation of 30 works in the Museum’s Community Gallery.”
