Billboards Embracing Our Differences

Nonprofit Embracing Our Differences SE uses the power of art and education to expand consciousness and open the heart to celebrate the diversity of the human family. They will conduct a Gala Grand Opening of their 2022 international outdoor art exhibit celebrating diversity beginning at 1 p.m., May 14, at park locations around the area. Locations include Gallup Park and Leslie Science & Nature Center, in Ann Arbor; and Riverside Park and Parkridge Park, in Ypsilanti.

As presented in Sarasota, Florida, for 19 years, beautiful and insightful artworks on the themes of diversity, equity and inclusion are selected from submissions from around the world, as well as from local artists. They will be enlarged to billboard size and printed on 16-by-12-foot, 13-ounce vinyl posters.

The centerpiece is a juried, outdoor exhibit featuring 60 images created by local, national and international artists, writers and students reflecting their interpretations of the theme, “Enriching our lives through diversity.”

Admission is free. For more info, visit and
