San Francisco Camerawork www.sfcamerawork.org and Daylighted www.daylighted.com are very pleased to announce a new partnership that will help bring SF Camerawork’s formidable collection of Bay Area photography to a wider audience. Using Daylighted’s innovative, interactive exhibitions technology, our partnership will enable SF Camerawork to engage in experimental models for broadened access to contemporary art. This is a new kind of cross-sector collaboration for both local non-profit arts organizations and small business.
SF Camerawork’s Fine Print program represents a deep commitment to supporting emerging and mid-career photography, and includes works by Ruth Bernard, Eve Arnold, David Levinthal, Janet Delaney, Richard Barnes, and David Maisel, among others. Funds from the fine print program go directly towards SF Camerawork’s mission to support and promote contemporary photography in the Bay Area.
SF Camerawork’s archive of fine prints will now be represented on Daylighted’s digital exhibitions platform, and will be displayed at a growing number of public venues in the Bay Area. Daylighted partners with local businesses to install and manage digital galleries that display a customized collection of artworks. This partnership will create new channels for exhibiting SF Camerawork’s fine print program, help to expand its membership, and support local and emerging artists.
“We are excited to be partnering with Daylighted and so appreciative of their initiative in reaching out into the local arts community to bring the work we do, and the artists we serve, to a wider audience.”
— Heather Snider, Executive Director, SF Camerawork
