Embracing Our Differences invites art submissions for its 11th annual outdoor art exhibit celebrating diversity. National and international submissions are encouraged. Thirty-nine artists will be selected for the exhibit. The Exhibit will be displayed April and May 2014 at two venues – Island Park along Sarasota, Florida’s beautiful bayfront and Riverwalk in Bradenton, FL. Since 2004, the exhibit has been viewed by more than 1,600,000 visitors.
Final selections will be chosen based on artistic excellence in reflection of the theme “embracing our differences” and made by a three-judge panel of professional artists, curators and art professionals. A total of $3,000 (US) in awards will be presented. There is no submission fee nor limit on the number of entries. Submissions must be postmarked no later than January 6, 2014.
