Proudly led by Viewpoint Photographic Art Center — a non-profit organization located in Midtown Sacramento — in collaboration with many partners including the City of Sacramento, the community’s first-ever Photography Month Sacramento is scheduled for April 2018. The enriching and collaborative visual arts celebration is supported by an ever-increasing number of engaged and supportive community partners.

Complete with a robust, diverse and ever-increasing series of upcoming events and activities that celebrate the visual arts, Photography Month Sacramento is a new, region-wide collaborative effort designed to create an accessible and visually-exciting collective experience that brings people together. With special events happening throughout the month, Photography Month Sacramento creates exciting and new opportunities for galleries, museums, educational institutions, libraries, retail establishments, bars, restaurants, photographers and patrons to share, celebrate and elevate the art of photography. Interested participants throughout Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties are encouraged to create and share their own exhibits, displays, lectures, receptions workshops, demonstrations, temporary public art displays, art walks and other special events to help showcase the art of photography. The month-long calendar of events will be posted on the Photography Month Sacramento website for interested community members to discover, appreciate and enjoy.
