Embracing Our Differences Announces 2020 Outdoor Art Exhibit and Top Winners



Embracing Our Differences uses the power of art and prose to promote culture and diversity. One way it accomplishes this is through its annual, juried international outdoor art exhibition consisting of 50 billboard-sized works of art, each accompanied by an inspirational quote. The response to the call for artwork and inspirational quotes was record-breaking this year, with 16,118 entries pouring in from 127 countries and 50 states. Students from 398 schools around the world submitted artwork or quotes to the juried exhibit. The winning quotes and art will be showcased in the 17th annual exhibit, January 18 through April 5, in Sarasota’s Bayfront Park. 

“Yet again, thousands of people from around the world seized the opportunity to celebrate the values of diversity and inclusion,” says Sarah Wertheimer, Embracing Our Differences’ executive director. “Our art selection jury was truly moved by the heartfelt honesty and level of artistic excellence.” “It boils down to respecting every individual for who they are. Human identity is a complex intersection of race, culture, sexual orientation and so much more. That incredible diversity is a beautiful thing."
