The Northwest Regional Exhibition space is holding an open call for South Florida artists to participate in En La Florida, our Hispanic Heritage Month Art Exhibit. This exhibition will be on display from September 15th to October 21st.

The deadline for submissions is August 19th, 2022.  Selected artists will be notified by August 26th, 2022.

Northwest Regional Exhibit Space (in Coral Springs) offers South Florida artists an opportunity to exhibit their work in a prominent, high-traffic area in the library.

All art forms and mediums will be considered, as long as the subject matter is in line with the themes of the exhibit, and appropriate for all public library visitors. All pieces must be original work by the artist and be either Hispanic Heritage themed or created by a Latinx artist. Due to the layout of the exhibit space, artwork that projects more than 6″ from the wall, and 3D work larger than 30”H x 17.5”W will not be considered. Selected artists must commit to displaying their work for the full length of the exhibit (September 15th to October 21st).

Artist Eligibility

All South Florida based artists eighteen years of age or older, living and working in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties are encouraged to apply.
