2017 Annual Outdoor Art Exhibit Celebrating Diversity


Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and effect change around the world.  Embracing Our Differences invites all artists to be a part of this change through your submissions to its 14th annual outdoor juried art exhibit celebrating diversity and inclusion. Artists, photographers, professionals, amateurs, teachers, students – everyone can participate.  42 artists will be selected and national and international submissions are encouraged. The exhibit will be displayed April and May 2017 in Sarasota, FL USA.  Since 2004, the exhibits have been viewed by more than 2,200,000 visitors.

Final selections will be made by a three-judge panel of professional artists, curators and art professionals and based on artistic excellence and originality in the reflection of our theme “enriching lives through diversity.” $3,000 (US) in awards will be presented.  There is no submission fee nor limit on the number of entries.  Submissions must be submitted online or postmarked no later than January 10, 2017.
