Attention Photo Junkies!

Thanks to your requests, Snapshot! A Tenement Museum Photo Event is back. The museum, usually off-limits to photographers, will be yours to capture in the beautiful morning light.

We had so much fun doing this program back in July. It was great to watch people explore the Museum in a new way and to see the care and attention they put into making their art.

If you've always wanted to take photographs inside 97 Orchard Street, this is your chance to do so, in the company of other like-minded folks.

First join us for doughnuts, cider and a short history of 97 Orchard Street's architecture and inhabitants.

Then explore the building's many apartments, stairwells, nooks and crannies. Educators will be on hand to answer questions, offer explanations, and make sure you have ample space to frame your shots.

After the program, upload your photos to our Flickr pool. They may end up on here on the blog (see Amy's winning shot from July's online contest)! Click here to view more photos from our inaugural event.

Here are the nitty gritty details:

  1. I WANT to do this but I am overseas until January. Please host another one next year!

  2. Damn, this place is expensive. I love you guys but your admission is waaaay too high for a non-comprehensive museum. I used to recommend you guys to out of town friends but no more.

    Your curating is great, though.

  3. Oh, bummer! I have a doctor's appointment during this, otherwise I'd love to come. I hope you do it again sometime soon.
