Embracing Our Differences - International Art Initiative
April and May 2015 - Sarasota, Florida, USA
My artwork "Rainbow Reading" is one of thirty-nine pieces selected for inclusion in the Embracing Our Differences exhibit on display during April and May 2015 in Sarasota's Island Park and Bradenton's Riverwalk. The exhibit received 6,454 submissions representing 80 countries and 42 states including Australia, Greece, Portugal, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.
Embracing Our Differences believes that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in our world. The project promotes diversity education throughout the community and works to teach everyone the importance of being an "up-stander," not a "by-stander." The art initiative also promotes the message that together, we can create a vibrant community that is safe and inclusive for all where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.
