58th Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition
As the state's oldest annual juried competition, the Museum's All Florida has introduced the works of thousands of Florida artists - emerging, under-recognized, and established younger and mid-career artists - in all media. The 58th Annual All Florida Juried Exhibition reinforces the Museum's commitment to Florida artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for up-and-coming artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse - through Florida artists' eyes - of the state of the art today.
2009's juror was Roy Slade, Director Emeritus of Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where he served as Director from 1977 to 1995. He has nearly thirty years experience as an artist, arts administrator and educator, and is an outspoken advocate of the arts, lecturing and writing about contemporary art and art museums.
60 artworks were presented - paintings, sculpture, photography and installations - by 48 artists from across the state, selected from 1260 entries.
