We interrupt your regularly scheduled flow of Polaroids to bring you this exciting announcement:
Polaroid SF has been granted the unique opportunity to design one of the 2015 Hearts in SF. You know those giant hearts around Union Square? Yeah, one of those! Our concept is to create a Polaroid Heart using hundreds and hundreds of Polaroid images, all of them taken in San Francisco. Don’t you think those Polaroids you have lying around would look better as public art? We do! It doesn’t matter if they’re new or old, good or bad, we want them all. There’s a lot of heart for us to cover! We’ll be accepting photos until Friday, September 5th. If you have Polaroids you’d like to submit, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll tell you where to send them.
There are a couple of guidelines though:
-Photographs must be an actual “Polaroid” photo. No copies or other type of photo print.
-Polaroids must have been taken within the city limits of San Francisco.
-No questionable content (c’mon now, this is for a piece of PUBLIC art).
-White framed Polaroids only (sorry, no Impossible Project skins, etc.).
-No Instax Mini shots.
-We can’t guarantee every picture we receive will be used (but we’ll try) and no photographs will not be returned (sorry).
The completed heart will be unveiled in December and installed (cross your fingers for Union Square!) throughout 2015. The heart will then be auctioned off with proceeds benefitting the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation.
