Boca Museum of Art
63rd Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition
August 10 - October 18, 2014
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, mid-career, and established 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.
Florida’s oldest annual juried all-media competition will return to the Boca Museum of Art, showcasing prominent and emerging Florida artists August 10 – October 18, 2014.
