Embracing Our Differences 10th Anniversary Outdoor Exhibits Announced
The winners of the 10th annual Embracing Our Differences outdoor juried art exhibit have been selected and will be on display March 31-June 2 at Sarasota’s Bayfront Park, on March 31-April 29 at Rossi Waterfront Park in Bradenton, and on May 1-June 2 at North Port High School. More than 2,400 entries were submitted by individuals from 44 countries and 32 states.
Sister Cities Association of Sarasota has partnered with Embracing Our Differences through our Alliance member of the Sarasota Manatee Jewish Federation since the initiative began. We annually invite artists from our Sister Cities to compete. Over the years we have had many artists submissions from our twinned communities displayed. Winners for 2013 are expected to be announced soon.
The centerpiece of the Embracing Our Differences are 39 billboard size images (12.5 feet by 16 feet) created by local, national and international artists, writers and students. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity."
