Embracing Our Differences' 2020 art exhibition will open Jan. 18 in downtown Sarasota's Bayfront Park. This year, the organization received 16,118 entries from 127 countries and 50 states in submissions for the 17th annual outdoor art exhibit celebrating diversity. 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 art winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000, which they split with their school’s art program. The person who pens the winning quote is awarded $1,000 to be split evenly with their school’s language arts program.
