JERSEY CITY, NJ.- In Spring 2008, Jersey City Museum organized I Love Jersey City, an open call for the public's photographs of their beloved city. This became a summer exhibition in the museum's upper atrium featuring these diverse and colorful images. Displaying over 150 photographs by professionals and amateurs alike, the project was a success and even inspired a specially-made Jersey City Museum I Love Jersey City t-shirt which was featured in Time Out New York.
In honor of the 2010 National Census, this year Jersey City Museum invites the public to send its 4 x 6 inch images of the people they know who live, work, or play in Jersey City for the exhibition, I Love Jersey City: Everybody Counts. Participants are encouraged to send in photographs of friends, family, co-workers, even copies of beloved old family photographs are welcome!
Photographs submitted will be compiled and installed in the museum's second floor atrium gallery in order to create a large-scale collage featuring diverse images of the people of Jersey City. The exhibition will be celebrated at the museum's Annual Meeting which will take place on July 30, 2009.
HOW TO SUBMIT: To submit photographs for the exhibition, please send printed 4 x 6 inch images (color or black and white) in horizontal or vertical format. Provide all contact information with your submission including name, address, phone and email address. SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE RETURNED, please do not turn in any original copies.
