DESCRIPTION

As the state’s oldest annual juried competition, the All Florida has introduced the work of thousands of Florida artists working in all media – emerging, under recognized, and established younger and mid-career artists.  It reinforces the Museum’s commitment to Florida artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse – through Florida artists’ eyes – of the state-of-the-art today through approximately 100 paintings, sculpture, photographs, video and installations. This year’s juror is Valerie Cassel Oliver, senior curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Prior to Houston, Cassel Oliver was director of the Visiting Artists Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1995-2000) and program specialist at the National Endowment for the Arts (1988-1995).  In 1999, she was part of a team of curators that organized the 2000 Biennial for the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Cassel Oliver will select this year’s All Florida and its award winners from more than 1500 entries.
