RIT Big Shot 31 at Churchill Downs - RIT Community Registration

Event Details
Date: 10/3/2015
Time: 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Cost: Free

Due to capacity, the Big Shot Alumni Reception is closed. We welcome you to register and attend the shot itself and ask you to arrive at Churchill Downs by 8:30 PM in order to participate. Sorry for any inconvenience.

The Big Shot is a free event open to both alumni and the general public! Join us as RIT brings this unique artistic and social event to Louisville.

The RIT Office of Alumni Relations and School of Photographic Arts and Sciences invite you to take part in the celebration of the 31st Big Shot. The Big Shot, often described as painting with light, involves hundreds of volunteers, armed with flashlights and camera flashes, illuminating a distinctive landmark during an extended photographic exposure. Past Big Shot subjects have included the Alamo in San Antonio, the Royal Palace in Stockholm, and the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York. This year we are delighted to announce that the Big Shot photo project will take place at Churchill Downs.

To celebrate, we will be hosting a private alumni reception prior to the Big Shot beginning at 6:00 pm. The reception will take place inside the stadium and will feature a classic picnic buffet and cash bar.

The Big Shot and reception are open to all RIT alumni and their families!

Alumni Reception: 6:00 - 8:30pm
Break into teams and photograph: 8:30 - 9:30pm

PLEASE NOTE: Participants must wear black or dark clothing and bring a flashlight or hand held strobe. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes as you may be standing for long periods of time. Use of laser pointers is prohibited and will result in removal from the event. Due to space limitations, unregistered attendees will not be admitted to the reception.
