To celebrate our wonderful community, the Mustard Seed is presenting a unique showcase from February 26th until May 21st 2017, at both our Highland Square and Montrose locations, and we’re asking Akron to participate. The Mustard Seed will be exhibiting “Through Akron’s Eyes”, a community-focused photography show based only on your best mobile device shots of our beautiful city. We invite you to participate by choosing up to three of your favorite quality cell phone photos you’ve taken of Akron, and submit them by email for review by January 13th, 2017 to be considered for the show. Artists will be informed by January 26th, 2017 if their photo has been selected for the show. Artists chosen will be asked to print and frame their photos in 5×7 or 8×10 size. Further details will be provided to selected artists. NOTE: No nudity, singular portraits or pets please. If you’ve always wanted to participate in hanging your art in a show but haven’t, now is your chance! Help us celebrate Akron’s uniqueness through the lenses of our beautiful people!
