In April and May 2012 the Narva Museum‘s Art Gallery in Estonia showed an exhibition of photographs from the Wiki Loves Monuments contest in Estonia and St. Petersburg.

The exhibition was jointly organized by Wikimedia Estonia and Wikimedia Russia; it presented the winners and the regional finalists of the competition Wiki loves monuments 2011, including photos that took the 2nd and 6th place in the international photo competition finals.

This is not the first time Wikimedia Estonia and Wikimedia Russia organized a  Wiki Loves Monuments photo exhibition: The November 2011 exhibition Wikipedia loves
Petersburg
was held in the competition sponsor’s halls of the art-hotel
“Rachmaninov” in St. Petersburg. Wikimedia Estonia organised several exibitions in the Tallinn Central Library, the Library Kyannukuke in Mustamäe, the O.Litsu central library in Tartu, the library of the district Annelinn in Tartu and Kuressaare Cultural Centre – quite an impressive series!

The exhibitions of both organizations used QR-codes of the QRpedia project as captions to the pictures. In addition, there is the ongoing Art Nouveau virtual exhibition on the Europeana website.

From an international perspective, these projects show the integrating potential of Wiki Loves Monuments: partnerships with cultural institutions and private sponsors, cross-border-partnerships of Wikimedia commmunities, cross-project-combination of QRpedia and Wiki Loves Monuments. Feel inspired!

Thanks to Anastasiya Lvova for the exhibition report!
