The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood is seeking entries to the 2018 Florida Biennial. All artists residing in the state of Florida are invited to submit original paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography, video, computer-generated images, performance, or site-specific installations. This edition focuses on exploring multicultural identities, discussing ecological issues, and imagining a robust cultural climate for Florida within the global economy. Submissions will be accepted from April 1 through June 1, 2018. All submissions will be judged by Sarah Fritchey, Curator and Gallery Director at Artspace in New Haven, CT. 

The entry fee is $50 per person to submit up to 10 available artworks in any medium. All entries must be submitted online. For entry, additional guidelines and more information, please visit or call 954-921-3274.

For the first time in our history, all selected artists will be awarded a stipend to refund their submission fee and to defray exhibition costs. Exhibiting artists also receive a Friend-level membership. The membership is part of the North American Reciprocal Program, which gives admission to nearly 1,000 art and cultural institutions throughout North America. Admission to the Artists’ Opening Reception will be free for members, $10 for non-members.

Two artworks will be selected to receive an honorarium. Announcement of the winners will take place during the opening reception. Distribution of the cash prize is as follows:
