Each year the Embracing Our Differences
international art exhibit gets bigger and better. Over the past 15
years, we have welcomed more than 2,500,000 visitors to the exhibit.
The centerpiece of Embracing Our
Differences is an outdoor juried international art exhibit featuring 45
billboard size images created by local, national and international
artists, writers and students reflecting their interpretations of the
theme "enriching lives through diversity."
The 2018 exhibit received 8,395
submissions representing 98 countries and 227 schools from such distant
places as India, Iran, Israel, Vietnam and South Korea. The 2019 exhibit will run from January 19 thru March 15, 2019 in Island Park along Sarasota's bay front.
Embracing Our Differences invites
you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced
and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change
through your visual art submission to the annual Embracing Our
Differences juried competition.
