Each year a consortium of Florida’s five county cultural councils awards 10 to 12 grants to visual and media artists residing
in the five counties. In an era of shrinking support for individual artists these $7,500 and $15,000 grants are among America’s
highest annual awards provided through a public competitive grant process. The exhibition presents recent works by these
artists and also allows some of them to make new works on-site often with the assistance of FAU students. The 2015 edition
of the exhibition marks the fifth time since 2001 that the exhibition has been presented by University Galleries. An illustrated
catalogue published by the University Galleries will document the exhibition.

The works in the exhibition were selected by Mariela Acuña and Rod Faulds.
