Creative Art Made with Polaroid Prints

If Polaroid gave you unlimited use of their instant printer, the GL10, what would you create? What pictures would you take and how would you arrange their 3″ x 4″ print-outs to make something unique and interesting? Tasked with this challenge, a mix of today’s artists, designers, photographers, actors and musicians came together in the name of charity. All pieces will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Free Arts NYC, a non-profit that provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children.”

The Made in Polaroid exhibit, currently going on in New York at Phillips de Pury & Company's gallery, showcases over 50 pieces from those we know and love including artists Dave Kinsey and Hush to photographers Steven Klein and Patrick Demarchelier. Here are 12 of our favorite pieces from the show.
