This year marks the 10th annual Speak Up for Ohio Museums Day - October 4, 2021, and the Ohio Museums Association is once again assembling a photo story to share with our elected officials, colleagues and friends, highlighting the importance of the vibrant and diverse museums that call Ohio home.
The last 18 months have hit Ohio museums hard, yet these organizations have continued to serve their communities and provide essential educational programming during this time. We want to highlight how museums have adapted, and the resiliency of the museums in Ohio!
We know you have a museum that you love, and OMA wants to help you spread the word about your museum's impact as an essential cornerstone of your community.
Send us a high resolution photo that you feel demonstrates why your museum matters. You can send photos to [email protected], with the subject line: OMA Photo Story
In your email, please include the exact wording you want to use in crediting your institution, along with a brief (280 characters or less) description of how you believe museums impact the community.
If you submit more than one photo, please include a different caption for each photo.
Deadline to submit photos: September 13, 2021
Please note: In submitting your photo, you are giving OMA permission to use in our Speak Up for Ohio Museums Day advocacy, and other efforts. OMA accepts your photos in the good faith that all persons in the photo have released permission to use their image.
We look forward to helping share the impact of your museum through this project! For questions or for more information, please contact OMA at [email protected].
