#BristolBattle

What is #BristolBattle?

To promote On Assignment: the Photojournalism of Horace Bristol, the museum is having a photo competition. In the exhibit, you’ll learn that Horace Bristol traveled around with John Steinbeck and captured the photographs of migrant workers that would later become the characters of The Grapes of Wrath.

We are challenging you to do the opposite! Take a photo that captures a character from one of your favorite books­—feel free to modernize that character for the 21st-century—then upload your photo to Instagram and use #BristolBattle and tag @fjjma in the photo by March 16!

The top 10 photos with the most likes will be featured on the website! The winner will be announced on March 24. Prizes include a gift card and a selection of books related to the Horace Bristol exhibition. Questions? Email madi.sussmann@gmail.com.

Stay tuned for the top 10 photos!
