Each year, the South Florida Cultural Consortium awards twelve Visual and Media Arts Fellowships. Artists residing in Florida’s five southeastern counties are eligible to compete for this nationally significant individual artist award which means the “Consortium” fellowship is hotly contested each year by the region’s best visual and media artists. The exhibition presents recent work by the 12 artists awarded a 2018 fellowship and marks the fifth time since 2001 that the University Galleries have had the honor of presenting this prestigious annual contemporary art exhibition.
The University Galleries will publish a catalogue to document the exhibition.
