Go to Embracing Our Differences on Facebook. 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. According to Sarah Wertheimer, executive director of Embracing Our Differences, only a fraction of the powerful artworks and statements are selected for each year’s outdoor exhibit. “Even so, we were deeply touched to see how many people share our core philosophy.”
