#WindWavesandLight Instagram Contest

How does Wind, Waves and Light move you? We want to see Wind, Waves & Light through your eyes — through your lens.

This year’s Instagram contest focuses on video. The special exhibition,  M&T Bank: Wind Waves and Light, Art in Motion by George Sherwood, features large-scale kinetic sculptures that are magnificent as they catch the light and move and change in the wind. Many of the sculptures will be located in water. So we thought they’d show up best in a video where you can showcase their movement. Capture the movement of the sculptures or answer the question, “How does Wind, Waves and Light move me?” Then, tag your posts #WindWavesandLight and you’ll be entered to win a prize package. Share your favorite still photos, too!
