If you have a special family holiday occasion you celebrate, your pictures are in demand. The Dubuque County Historical Society is seeking photography submissions for their upcoming exhibit Dubuque Traditions: A Photographic Experience as part of Home for the Holidays. Victoria Cote says the exhibit will provide a chance to experience the holiday traditions of our neighbors and friends. Traditions include the stories, beliefs, customs, and routines that provide a sense of belonging, whether they are with family, friends or even strangers that you reach out to during the holidays. Dubuque Traditions is a chance to explore the moments in life, caught on camera, that represent those special things that build a connection between the people in our community. The exhibit will open November 30th – Dec 22nd at the Mathias Ham Historic Site. Deadline for submissions is October 15th and photos must display holiday traditions during the months of October to January. For more information and guidlines go to page 2 of the events section of rivermuseum.com.
