Photos from beginners, amateurs and pros to be exhibited at MoLAA

The Arts Council for Long Beach is partnering once again with the Port of Long Beach for Port of Long Beach Photo, a three-part photography learning experience for amateur and pro photographers alike. The free program will be held this summer and end in October in conjunction with Long Beach Arts Month, which is an annual celebration of local arts and culture.

The series consists of a workshop taught by Port photographers, followed by a twilight shoot aboard a boat, culminating with a gallery exhibition and reception showcasing photos from every participant, with recognition for the best work. A DSLR camera is mandatory to participate.

This is the third year that the Port has partnered with the Arts Council for this successful photo program. We’re also happy to announce that the exhibit will be featured at the Museum of Latin American Art this year.

Reservations will open Wednesday, July 8, at noon and are limited to 75 people. You can RSVP by clicking here.
