Embracing Our Differences is seeking submissions for an outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard size images created by local, national, and international artists and writers. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity." The exhibit is displayed annually at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota. The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message.
Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and, affect change around the world. Embracing Our Differences invites participants to create a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change by submitting a visual art piece to the competition.
Awards are given for "Best-in-Show Adult," "Best-in-Show Student," and "People's Choice" categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000 with $500 to be directed to the student and $500 to their school’s art program, if they worked under the direction of an educator.
