South Florida Cultural Consortium Exhibition 2011 opens just as South Florida Cultural Consortium Exhibition 2010 closed at the Frost Museum (FIU). Every year this exhibition brings new artists to our attention. Since the awards are given independent of any possible exhibition of the selected artists, it is always a challenge for the host facility to install a good looking, cohesive exhibition because some works do not work with other works. That being said, we should look at, and think of this exhibition as a kind of solo exhibition for each artist.
The Art and Culture of Hollywood is honored to present for the first time in its 30+ year history, the exhibition of winners of the 23rd Annual South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Arts Fellowship Awards.
The recipients were selected during a two-tier panel process which included the participation of regional and national arts experts. Selection by the regional panel was anonymous and based solely on the quality of the artists’ work as evidenced by digital images, slides, or video/films submitted. The regional panel included: Francie Bishop Good, Visual Artist, 2010 SFCC Recipient, Broward; Wendy Blazier, Senior Curator, Boca Museum of Art, Palm Beach; Denise Delgado, Miami-Dade Public Library System, Miami-Dade; Irvin Lippman, Executive Director, Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Broward; Rene Morales, Associate Curator, Miami Art Museum, Miami-Dade; and Glexis Novoa, Visual Artist, 2010 SFCC Recipient, Miami-Dade. The regional panel forwarded their recommendations to the national panel, which included: Dina Deitsch, Associate Curator, DeCordava Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; and Cheryl Hartup, Chief Curator, Museo de Ponce, Ponce, Puerto Rico.
