Embracing Our Differences

SDP  4-11-12
Welcome to Bayfront Park in Sarasota where the annual Embracing Our Differences international outdoor art display is underway. The event is intended to create awareness about the value of diversity through the use of art. Dozens of oversized canvasses contain artwork and messages submitted by children and adults from around the world. According to the Embracing Our Differences website, this was a record setting year for submissions, with over 4,500 pieces of artwork and quotations coming in from 53 countries. That's impressive. Bayfront Park is a terrific venue for the event with lots of visitors and plenty of space right on Sarasota Bay and the marina. Over the next few days, we'll take a walk around the park and explore some of the exhibits which will be here through May.

With so much anti-diversity these days, this kind of thing becomes ever more important! Kudos to those responsible! Viva la difference!
