Embracing Kindness

October 21 - November 26

This outdoor installation is free for all, Museum admission bought separately.

Great Lawn 

Embracing Kindness features enlarged images of 14 original works of art and quotations from the past 20 years, created by local, national and international artists, writers and students reflecting their interpretations of the theme “enriching lives through diversity and inclusion.”    

Images are displayed on 16 feet wide by 12.5 feet high billboard-size panels. Each panel features artwork and a quotation from different individuals who have never met or seen each other’s work. Their submissions are chosen through a blind, juried selection process and then matched up based on theme during the final curation process.   

Collective impact is at the core of everything that Embracing Our Differences does. We at Embracing Our Differences are proud to partner with Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College of Art and Design to present this special 20th anniversary exhibition honoring our shared values.
