Boca Museum of Art
62nd Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition
May 7 – July 14, 2013
The Boca Museum All Florida exhibition annually showcases the best prominent and emerging Florida artists working today.
As the state's oldest annual juried competition, the Museum's All Florida, Boca Raton, has introduced the work of thousands of emerging as well as established Florida artists.
Representing a cross-section of our state's talent, the 62nd All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition reinforces the Museum's commitment to local artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse of the state of Florida art.
Mark Scala is the Chief Curator at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, in Nashville, Tennessee, where he has been employed since 2000. Scala’s most recent exhibition is Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination (2012), an international survey that explores the symbolism of the hybrid body in contemporary works inspired by sources ranging from folklore and science fiction to recent advances in genetic engineering, prosthetics, and other aspects of bodily adaptation.
This was presented at the Frist Center, then traveled to the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Glenbow Museum in Calgary. Previous exhibitions have included Paint Made Flesh (2009) an international survey of figure painting in the U.S., Germany, and Britain since World War II, which traveled to the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. and the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester; Whispering Wind: Recent Chinese Photography; Art from the UBS PaineWebber Art Collection; and many solo exhibitions of contemporary art.
