2021 Embracing Our Differences International Art Exhibit Celebrating Diversity




Artists possess a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without
uttering a single word, they can enlighten, educate and effect
change around the world. Embracing Our Differences© invites
you to participate in creating a society where diversity is
embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of
this change by submitting your original art to Embracing Our
Differences© and its annual international outdoor juried art
exhibit featuring 50 billboard-size images measuring 16 feet
(5m) wide by 12.5 feet (4m) high. Each work of art is created
by local, national and international artists reflecting their
interpretation of our theme “enriching lives through diversity
and inclusion.”

The exhibit will be on display January 20 through April 1, 2021
at Sarasota’s Bayfront Park in Southwest Florida. Since 2004
the exhibit has hosted over 3,000,000 visitors plus another
360,000 students for a very unique opportunity to experience
the importance of diversity and inclusion in our lives.

The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. 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.
