Sarasota News Leader May 10, 2013 Page 52 The School Board also praised area residents and youngsters who submitted winning artwork and quotations for Embracing Our Differences, a juried art exhibition in its 10th year. Embracing Our Differences promotes inclusion, tolerance, acceptance and respect. The pieces on exhibit are the size of billboards — 12 feet by 16 feet. They can be seen through June 2 at Island Park in Sarasota and at North Port High School. The locals were up against stiff worldwide competition. This year, the competition netted more than 4,000 entries from 52 countries and 44 states, said Michael Shelton, executive director of Embracing Our Differences. "What you have done, to make us think twice, embraces your goal of 10 years ago, of changing the world," School Board Vice Chairwom- Daphne English-Bazenas of Sarasota wrote this quote for Embracing Our Differences.
