Winners and honorable mentions will be announced at Family Fun Day April 15. The winners will also have their work exhibited at The Public Library.

The contest will highlight two upcoming photography exhibits and a current permanent collection photography exhibition.

“Under the Mexican Sky: A Revolution in Modern Photography” will open Feb. 2. It explores “the important role Mexico and Mexico City played in the development of international modernism through rare vintage photographs from the 1920s by Los Angelino Edward Weston and Hollywood silent film star turned photographer Tina Modotti.” The exhibit also includes photos from the 1930s by New Yorker Paul Strand, Frenchman Henri Cartier-Bresson and Mexico’s Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

Opening Feb. 9, “New Media, New Millennium: Digital Art From the Thoma Foundation” presents photos by artists who “are bypassing the traditional tools of artmaking for screens, software and coding.” The exhibit features time-based, dynamic and interactive pieces by artists such as Leo Villareal and Jennifer Steinkamp.
