    Oh Snap! is a collaborative photography project that lets you share your work in our gallery. Starting February 21, Carnegie Museum of Art’s Forum Gallery will feature 13 works recently added to our photography collection meant to spark a creative response. We hope one (or more!) will inspire you to take pictures and share them.

    Works from the collection reflect the museum’s growing commitment to photography, both contemporary and historical. Some highlights include a whimsical image by early-20th-century protégée Jacques Henri Charles au Lartigue; a unique album page by mid-century Malian photographer Malick Sidibé; and an elegiac view of our changing city by Pittsburgh-based Charlee Brodsky.

    How does it work?
    Visitors are invited to submit their own photographs inspired by one of the 13 works from the exhibition. Think about subject, character, landscape, composition, color, mood—whatever interests you! Every day, we’ll print out new photographs you submit and hang them alongside their inspirations in the gallery. If your work is selected, we’ll let you know when it will be on view, and give you a free pass to come visit it—we may even feature your photograph in a museum publication! Whether you’re visiting our museum here in Pittsburgh or visiting the website from anywhere else in the world, we hope you will get inspired to make your own photographs and share them!

    Visit the Oh Snap! website to see all of the photographs and submit your own!
