The great outdoors: Call for first Dakota County photography exhibition.

Photographers looking to display their work can submit their original photos to be considered for a new exhibit planned for February 2012.  Photographers, age 8 and older, may submit up to two photographs reflecting the theme Dakota County Outdoors.  They must live in Dakota County, and submissions are due by Monday, Jan. 2, 2012.
 
The photography exhibit is one of the ways the Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is working to make local art more accessible to residents.
 
The committee will review the submissions and make a recommendation to the board. The Dakota County Board of Commissioners will make the final decision on which photographs will be exhibited. The committee includes seven members who have backgrounds in art and have been selected by the board.
 
The photographs will be displayed in public spaces in Dakota County service centers, including the Western Service Center in Apple Valley, the Northern Service Center in West St. Paul, and the Administration Center in Hastings. The exhibit will last for a total of six months.
 
Selected photographs must be prepared for hanging on a wall and meet the criteria outlined by the committee. The criteria is at www.dakotacounty.us and can be found by searching photography exhibit. For more information, photographers can also contact Jean Erickson, deputy director of Dakota County's Public Services and Revenue Division, 651-438-4286 or jean.erickson@co.dakota.mn.us.
