Call for Entries: Boca Raton Museum All Florida Competition and Exhibition

Published April 5, 2011


The Museum’s All Florida exhibition annually showcases the best prominent and emerging Florida artists working in all media today. As the state’s oldest annual juried competition, the Museum’s All Florida has introduced the work of thousands of Florida artists – emerging, under-recognized, and established younger and mid-career artists. Representing a dynamic contemporary cross-section of our state’s talent, the 60th All Florida Juried Exhibition reinforces the Museum’s commitment to Florida artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse – through Florida artists’ eyes – of the state-of-the-art today.

The juror for the 60th Annual All Florida is Valerie Ann Leeds. Ms. Leeds is an independent scholar living in New Jersey. She serves as adjunct curator of American Art at the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan, and prior to that held curatorial positions at the Orlando Museum of Art, the Tampa Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She earned her M.A. at Syracuse University, and her Ph.D. in American Art at the City University of New York. Dr. Leeds is an expert on the work of Robert Henri, and has organized exhibitions, lectured and written on various topics in American Art.
