Event Details:

PineRidge Arts Council is holding a Durham wide - Snap a Selfie with Sculpture contest on Instagram #sculpturesofdurham. We are encouraging people to get out of the house, have some fun in Durham, and take selfies with some or all of the over 70 outdoor public works of art in their neighbourhood. From simply visiting a local sculpture for the first time, to planning a grand tour to see all, the timing and choice of locations are open. In COVID times, this is a safe way to set an outdoor goal, socially distance and "see" the pieces that have been placed for our enjoyment. Some players might like to follow a sculptor's work throughout Durham and some may want to hold a competition with family and friends.

If you are unable to take a selfie, a photo of you with one of the Durham sculptures accepted.

To join in the game, photos can be shared on facebook @pineridgearts and Instagram #sculpturesofdurham. Each month, PRAC will award the photographer of the best liked photo on Instagram $50.

NEW: Central Counties Tourism has partnered with Snap a Selfie with Sculpture and are offering a $50 gift certificate for a Durham restaurant or retailer as prize for an instagram entry. AND starting April 1, 2021 we are extending the initiative to facebook! Top facebook post for the month will also receive a $50 gift certificate for a Durham restaurant or retailer as their prize.

List of over 70 public outdoor art forms can be downloaded - we are updating it as we learn of them.

The contest will run until May 31, 2021.
