Curator’s Choice: Monet-Inspired Instagram Contest

Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature opens at the Denver Art Museum on October 21, 2019. This summer, in anticipation of this exhibition (the largest and most comprehensive Monet presentation in the U.S. in more than two decades) we invite you to participate in an Instagram photo contest for the chance to win a grand Monet exhibition-themed prize!

Claude Monet traveled more extensively than any other impressionist artist in search of new motifs. The places he traveled fueled his continuous interest in capturing the quickly changing atmospheres, the reflective qualities of water and the effects of light in nature.

THE CONTEST

Taking inspiration from Monet’s artistry, snap a photo of a place in nature—a garden or a landscape—and share it on your public Instagram account with #MonetxDAM, along with a caption that describes what inspires you about that particular place. Contest submissions will be accepted June 25 through July 31, 2019. You must be following @denverartmuseum on Instagram and include @denverartmuseum #DenverArtMuseum and #MonetxDAM in your Instagram image caption to be eligible to win.

THE PRIZE

Four (4) VIP (untimed) tickets to Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature at the Denver Art Museum.

One (1) Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature exhibition catalog.

One (1) Monet-themed goodie bag from The Shop at the DAM valued at $100.

OFFICIAL RULES

Contestants must be at least 18 years of age or older on or before July 31, 2019, and have a public Instagram account. There are no residency restrictions, but please note that travel and lodging is not included in contest prize. This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by or associated with Instagram.

HOW THE WINNER IS CHOSEN

DAM curators will choose the winner of this contest. The winning photo will be reposted on the DAM’s Instagram account and the DAM communications department staff will direct message the winner on Instagram and arrange for the pickup of the prize.

Happy posting and good luck!
