The Coral Springs Museum of Art invites artists or artist teams to explore the theme, “DIASPORA” in a time of change: Diaspora is a term used to describe movements in population from one country to another and is often cited in discussions about identity.

In relation to art, the term diaspora is used to discuss artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another, (or whose families have), and who express their diverse experiences of culture and identity in the work they make; often expressing alternative narratives, and challenging the ideas and structures of the established art world.

Submit art that explores symbolism, story, and beyond or any interpretation of the call that engages the artists.

Work must be original and not older than two (2) years old. No reproductions accepted. All Art forms encouraged.

"We are leveling the playing field for emerging artists. This exhibit will be blind juried by a curator and/or art professional from a South Florida Cultural Institution. This allows artist’ work to be evaluated purely on merit rather than resume content, leveling the playing field for emerging artists.

We don’t care about your fancy resume or lack thereof for this show. We care about the art! The Coral Springs Museum of Art encourages artists to think outside the box and use their creativity to engage with thoughts and issues facing their communities, lives, work and the theme of this show. Be brave! This is a safe space to try new or hard things."

Special exhibit Award: $250 for overall exhibit winner, artwork used in our exhibition promotion and the artist work will be featured on our show title/ statement wall.

Call for Artist: Studio 18 Pembroke Pines presents Duality; The Dichotomy of Being

Studio 18 Pembroke Pines 


Duality; The Dichotomy of Being

DEADLINE: December 21, 2020
Virtual Exhibition: January 15 - March 3, 2021
Studio 18 Pembroke Pines Curator: Maritza Benson
1101 Poinciana Drive, Pembroke Pines, Florida

Studio 18 in the Pines is seeking visual artists that create works that explore the concept of duality. We experience this world as a duality, a contrast between two concepts or two aspects of reality.

Day and Night. Life and Death. Order or Chaos. Good and Evil. Me and my Shadow. The need to lead a high octane, high impact life; while also craving the simple life. Messages in this society that you must be true to yourself but then you must do it in the way that others see fit. Can these two worlds co-exist, or are they distinct and contrasted with one another? Must we make a choice, or can we make them work in harmony?

We are looking for artistic works that explore these questions and the experience of duality.
