Picture Louisville Vintage Photo Scavenger Hunt set for Aug. 13

Registration deadline Aug. 8

Picture_Louisville-1-696x522LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 25, 2016) — The University of Louisville Photographic Archives and Yelp Louisville are partnering to present the inaugural Picture Louisville Vintage Photo Scavenger Hunt at 11 a.m. on Aug. 13 at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts in Louisville.

Participants will be given 10 vintage photos taken in downtown Louisville. They’ll race to find where those spots are and snap a picture of the current location with the vintage photo proving they found it. They must post a picture from each of the selected spots to Instagram with the hashtag #PicLou. Every team or participant who finds all of the locations of the vintage photos will receive a prize pack. Special prizes also will be awarded to the person or team finishing first. The event will take about two hours to complete.

“This is a fun way to show off some of the one-of-a-kind images Photographic Archives has in its vast collection,” said Carrie Daniels, director of Archives and Special Collections. “We have such a treasure-trove of photos, many of them local or regional, that the public can enjoy.”

The event is free, but space is limited. To participate, register here by Aug. 8.
