10th Annual "Embracing Our Differences" Exhibit
General Event Information
Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences' annual juried art exhibit has graced downtown Sarasota's bayfront with billboard-sized images created by artists, writers and students from around the world reflecting their interpretation of the message, “enriching lives through diversity.” This year, a grant from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation enabled the organization to mark its tenth anniversary with an expansion of the exhibit to Bradenton. The "Embracing Our Differences" exhibit will be showcased in Sarasota's Island Park, March 31-June 2, 2013; and at the Anthony T. Rossi Waterfront Park in downtown Bradenton, March 31-April 29.
