C3 Community Projects

The Center for Creative Connections (C3) promotes conversation and community by collaborating with artists and institutions to develop and produce art installations and experiences for and about the community. The result of the collaboration is a mutual understanding of each other's creative process—everyone learns something new.

Sumit Your Photos - DMA Repetition
July - September 2016

In the photographs Hangers and Revenge of the Goldfish, currently on view in the Center for Creative Connections, artist Sandy Skoglund creates surrealistic environments through repetition of unexpected objects. Inspired by her work, we invite visitors to submit their photographs of whimsical or commonplace repetitions. Join our Flickr Group DMA Repetition and submit your photographs to have your images displayed at the Center for Creative Connections #DMAdigitalspot.
