Community Picture Project - A Day in the Life: 10.10.2010

The purpose of A Day in the Life: 10.10.2010 is to celebrate each of Montpelier’s unique neighborhoods and residents by taking photographs throughout the city on a single day. Given the success of the 1.10.10 project, CAN! has decided to replicate the event during Vermont’s most beautiful season, autumn. While individual photos will capture distinct aspects of Montpelier’s neighborhoods, together, the photos in the exhibit will paint a collective picture of our city.

A Day in the Life - 10.10.2010
All Montpelier residents are encouraged to submit photos of their neighborhood to be displayed in the exhibit. If you are unsure of your what neighborhood you reside, please provide your address when submitting your photos.

The exhibit will be composed of photographs that capture the extraordinary in the ordinary, within one’s neighborhood. For example, photos of dinner with friends, walking the dog, sledding, brushing your teeth, landscapes, people, pets-the little things that make life interesting and worthwhile.

Photos are to be taken from 12:01a.m. - 12:59 p.m. on October 10, 2010. The photo exhibition will be displayed in early November. This means that the exhibition will be displayed during Election Day. The exhibit is free and open to the public. There will be a public vote for “Best in Show.” The winner will receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant.

Photos should be taken in one’s respective neighborhood. The opening reception and exhibit will take place in City Hall.
