Embracing Our Differences Announces 2021 Outdoor Art Exhibit

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY NOV 25, 2020

Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote 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 brought 15,912 entries pouring in from 128 countries and 48 states. Students from 412 schools around the world submitted artwork or quotes to the juried exhibit. The winning quotes and art will be showcased in the 18th annual exhibit, January 20 through April 1, in Sarasota’s Bayfront Park. Sarah Wertheimer, Embracing Our Differences’ executive director, says “Embracing our Differences exists to proclaim the values of inclusion, kindness and respect and we were moved to see that thousands of people around the world share these values."
