Made in Polaroid Exhibit Brings Together Artists, Celebrities and Designers to Benefit Charity

Posted: Sep 07, 2011

Polaroid Exhibit Features New Works of Over 60 Artists on Display in New York City from September 7 – 14, 2011 

New York, NY (September 7, 2011) - Polaroid is honoring its founder Dr. Edwin Land's passion for the arts with the launch of the Made in Polaroid exhibit. An art show featuring more than 60 pieces created by a mix of artists, designers, photographers, actors and musicians who are united in their passion for creativity, all pieces will be auctioned with proceeds benefitting Free Arts NYC, a non-profit that provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children. Participating artists include fashion photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Steven Klein, designers Cynthia Rowley and Phillip Lim and actors James Franco and Viggo Mortensen, among many others.

It's very interesting to me that at this moment in time the new Polaroid G10 printer arrives and re-objectifies the photograph literally making an object a paper photograph" said participating photographer Matthew Rolston. "We seem to be headed toward a paperless world of visual communication and yet here we have an exciting new product that re-invigorates the thought of trading imagery - actual photographs that we hold in our hands - with each other."
