Call for Photographs

Glass City Convention Center

Artist Cable Griffith ( is developing a series of illuminated artworks for the Toledo Glass City Convention Center and is looking for photo submissions from residents of Lucas County.

Each of the six artworks will feature a different Toledo Metropark and will be based on photos submitted by the public. These photographs will be combined and reinterpreted through a process of pixelation and abstraction. All participating photographers will receive an acknowledgment of their contributions associated with the final artwork.

This collaborative project is meant to inspire and document a collective appreciation of the region’s natural spaces. To submit photos to the project, just visit any of the following 6 Metroparks and share up to 12 photographs that capture some of your favorite elements.

  • Oak Openings Preserve

  • Middlegrounds

  • Howard Marsh

  • Manhattan Marsh Preserve

  • Swan Creek Preserve

  • Wildwood Preserve
