One part gallery exhibition, one part viral Instagram hashtag, one part local art market, and one helluva party by your friends at StepOutBuffalo.com.
You know all of those #hashtagstepoutbuffalo photos you’ve been posting, liking, and sharing? Step Out Buffalo’s Buffalo Insta Exhibition on September 14 is using them to bring the best of *your* Buffalo Instagrams to life. Real life! Like Jumanji but with photographs and no monsoons or giant deadly spiders.
We’re taking 500 #hashtagstepoutbuffalo photos aka 500 of the best Buffalo Instagram photos taken by YOU then printing and displaying them as 5×5 prints in an art exhibit inside an industrial warehouse building in the Cobblestone District. And yes, it’s going to be as cool as it sounds.
This curated Buffalo Insta Exhibition will include #hashtagstepoutbuffalo photos submitted by people all over Buffalo and Western New York as well as photographs by local amateur and professional photographers to create an awe-inspiring/gorgeous/cool/unique/holy crap-worthy collection of images that capture how insert-your-favorite-adjective-here our City is.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE. In addition to these awesome photographs of our favorite city and the chance to see your own Instagram photos printed and displayed in an art exhibition, there will also be super talented local Western New York artists and vendors showcasing and selling their Buffalo-based art and creations. These artists have been handpicked for the Buffalo Insta Exhibition and their work will make you feel nothing but Buffalove. There will also be a live DJ, food trucks (Lomo Lomo, Gourm-Asian Bistro), and a cash bar because everything’s better with a jams, food trucks, and a bar.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Anyone (that means you) can submit their photos taken in Buffalo and Western New York for a chance to be featured in the Step Out Buffalo Buffalo Insta Exhibition by adding #hashtagstepoutbuffalo on their Instagram and other social media posts. Already using #hashtagstepoutbuffalo? Perfect! You’re already entered.
