Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate, and affect change around the world. Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity.

In celebration of Embracing Our Differences’ 20th anniversary, the outdoor juried art exhibit award amounts have been doubled this year.

  • Awards are given for “Best-in-Show Adult,” “Best-in-Show Student,” and “People’s Choice” categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit.
  • Adult winners each receive $2,000; students receive $2,000 with $1,000 to be directed to the student and $1,000 to their school’s art program, if they worked under the direction of an educator.

In 2022, over 370,000 people visited the exhibition when it was located at Bayfront Park. With the exhibition moving to three separate locations, Embracing Our Differences expects there to be even more exposure for the artists’ artwork.

About the City of Keller

Keller, Texas is home to over 45,000 people who enjoy quality schools, thriving businesses, an award-winning parks and trails system, and excellent, efficient, and innovative municipal service. In 2001, the development of a Public Arts Program was a natural progression in the flourishing Keller community. Since then, public art has become an increasingly prominent feature in Keller thanks to the efforts of the city, private individuals, local businesses, civic organizations, and the community at large.

Keller has established a notable collection of sculptures and an annual schedule of family-friendly art events. Neighboring communities have used similar approaches to public art by pursuing permanent pieces, often for city facilities or as part of capital projects, and by establishing recurring, signature art events and festivals. The Keller art community regularly leverages available cultural resources in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area to bring a broader spectrum of art to Keller, often in creative or uncommon ways in order to distinguish the local arts program, and the city, from other areas.

The mission of the Public Arts Program is to support and promote a process that will encourage visual and performing arts in public places and to define the programs, policies, and guidelines for acquiring and commissioning of arts of the highest standards to enrich the quality of life for all residents and visitors of the City of Keller.

This sculpture will be an important improvement to the Midtown Greenway, Minnesota’s busiest non-motorized transportation corridor that serves thousands daily, and the East Phillips Neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 3 Dec 2021 4pm CT

Showcase how public art can be a functional item that lights up a dark area and inspires additional projects elsewhere along the 5.5 mile-long Midtown Greenway, the #1 urban bikeway in the U.S. This Light-emitting Sculpture is an opportunity to work directly with an impacted community in a largely low-income and very diverse neighborhood.

An Advisory Team composed of neighbors will select three finalists. The Advisory Team for the sculpture is composed of residents on the two blocks adjacent to the proposed sculpture location and includes Latina, African American African immigrant, white, and queer people. The public will vote for their favorite design from among those three, based largely on the sculpture’s likelihood of making viewers say “Wow!” A contract for up to $8,000 will be offered to the winning artist for the design phase, resulting in a detailed design that can be used to pursue approvals to install the sculpture in public space. An additional contract for construction and installation will likely be offered to the winning artist to achieve sculpture installation by late August 2022. The sculpture will be unusual in that it will be a thing of beauty and quality in a high crime neighborhood where morale needs a boost.

About The Midtown Greenway Coalition

The Midtown Greenway Coalition is the grassroots nonprofit organization that advocated for public agencies to create the Midtown Greenway. The Coalition continues to serve as the community’s voice in protecting, improving, and promoting the use of the Midtown Greenway.
