Description

Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate and affect change around the world.

Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity. The centerpiece of Embracing Our Differences is an outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard size images (12.5 feet by 16 feet) created by local, national and international artists and writers. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity." The exhibit is displayed annually at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota. The 2019 exhibit hosted 218,000 visitors to Bayfront Park, bringing total attendance, since 2004, to more than 2,920,000.

Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art submission to the annual Embracing Our Differences international juried competition. The statements accompanying each artwork are also vital and provide insight into our common humanity—as well as the differences that make us all unique.

The 2019 exhibit received 11,791 submissions representing 111 countries and 44 states including such distant lands as China, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, Romania, and Thailand. More than 65% of the submissions were made by students from 239 schools.

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.

The 2020 exhibit will be displayed beginning January 18 in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.

How to Apply

All work should be submitted through the Embracing Our Differences website.

JUROR

Rebecca Hossack Gallery , London and New York

The Director of three galleries in central London and New York, Rebecca Hossack was born in Melbourne in 1955.

Following degrees in Law and in History of Art, Hossack studied at Christie's and at The Guggenheim in Venice. She set up her own gallery in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, in March 1988. (She signed the lease only three days before the great stock-market crash on 'Black Monday').

Hossack's business, despte the economic climate, has not only survived, but thrived. In 2007 she moved the main London gallery to a three-storey building in 2a Conway Street, off Fitzroy Square, while keeping a second space at nearby 28 Charlotte Street.

From 1993-7, Hossack served as the Australian cultural attaché in London, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London. Her 'unworthy predecessor' Sir Les Patterson saluted her as 'one beaut sheila'. Hossack's portrait was included in Australians, an exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland at the National Portrait Gallery (with an accompanying book) celebrating 'the contributions of 55 famous Aussie "ex-pats".

We might have called this season "Revolutions," but in this all too important year, we've chosen to dig into our own mission statement, which guides us toward using “live theater as a powerful agent of change,” for inspiration in our programming. What does it mean and what does it take to make change in our lives, both personal and public, together and independently? Publically, we’ve seen a lot of change, as we always have and always will – what’s the next step? How do we move forward, ensuring growth as we do? This season, we are encouraging artists to submit work that probes, interrogates, and celebrates change, growth, renewal - and revolution. We are able to accommodate all wall-mounted visual art, small space for ceramics, no video installations.

Pacific Science Center (PacSci) invites applications from local artists for a six-month residency. The Artist in Residence (AiR) program, launched in July 2018, offers local artists an opportunity to develop, expand, and apply their skills to explore connections between STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) disciplines.

The mission of PacSci is to ignite curiosity in every child and fuel a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us. Our award-winning, interactive programs reach more than 1.1 million people each year – in their communities, classrooms, and on our campus.

While we often use scientific content as the platform for our mission, we recognize that multiple disciplines help us achieve it. For many members of the public, a cross-disciplinary approach not only enhances their experience, but also ignites their curiosity while increasing understanding of the natural connections between art and STEM disciplines. We believe that the processes of STEM and art share many similarities. Both rely on creativity, experimentation, dedication, and technical skills. One discipline may spark an interest in the other; one may help a person understand the other more deeply.

Program Overview

The AiR program provides a unique opportunity for artists to advance their creative practice while growing their skills related to communication, public engagement, and teaching. Throughout the residency, artists deepen their creative practice through STEM exploration, public engagement, and knowledge-sharing.

In addition to receiving support from PacSci staff, artists will have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists from our Science Communication Fellowship program, who are active academic or industry researchers or other science-based professionals in the Puget Sound region.
