C&I Studios Hosts First Instagram Art Gallery in South Florida April 28th, 2012
Instagram Photos Compiled Throughout 30-Day Contest Exhibit During April Art Walk

Proving that the trend of young, creative energy in Fort Lauderdale is indeed gaining momentum, C&I Studios will host an Instagram Art Gallery during the FAT Village Art Walk on April 28th, 2012. Exhibiting photos that were submitted through their month long Photo A Day Challenge, guests will choose their favorite from thousands of photos collected in a virtual media meets in person popularity vote on the night of the exhibit. (Placing the recognizable “Like” heart on your photo of choice means one vote for that photo.)

Every Instagram photo with the hashtag, #CIPhotoADay will be printed and exhibited during the gallery event, and each day has a specific theme such as First Love, Conversation, and Self Portrait.

When asked what inspired the gallery, Studio Director, Joshua Miller states, “We really want to bring attention and credibility to Fort Lauderdale as a player in the creative world. We saw an opportunity with Instagram, which is an app that we use many times a day in the studio…So far, we are amazed at the quality of images submitted, especially considering that everything is taken with a cell phone.”

The Instagram Art Gallery will benefit Help Portrait, an organization in which photographers are able to give back to their community by shooting and delivering portraits of underprivileged families, who may otherwise never have the experience of taking a family photo. Photos will be available for “purchase” by way of making a donation to Help Portrait.

The event will take place at 7:30pm and is open to the public. Live music will be provided by pianist Anthony Alvarez, and cocktails will be available. To submit a photo to the Instagram Art Gallery at C&I Studios, use the hashtag #CIPhotoADay on Instagram. C&I Studios is located at 541 NW 1st Ave Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
