Detroit’s Sacred Places

In conjunction with the exhibition Kenro Izu: Sacred Places , the Detroit Institute of Arts is organizing an online photo contest that invites DIA visitors, the online community, and the general public to submit photos that capture their interpretation of sacred Detroit. Exhibition curators Nancy Barr and Amelia Chau, as well as Kyohei Abe, professor of photography at the College for Creative Studies, will use this space to review and comment on a selection of the submissions. The winner of the contest will receive prizes, including a signed copy of Kenro Izu: Light over Sacred Places of Asia, two front-row seats to Izu’s lecture on September 14, 2008, and admission for two to the post-lecture strolling supper.

Join the conversation!
Photo submissions open July 9 and run through September 3.
