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.

This Year’s Boca Museum All Florida Juror

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.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
