9th Annual Florida Prize in Contemporary Art Exhibition extended at Orlando Museum Of Art

The Orlando Museum of Art has announced extended dates for the 2023 Florida Prize in Contemporary Art. The exhibition, originally scheduled to close on August 27, will now be on view through Sunday, September 17, 2023.


The Florida Prize in Contemporary Art is organized by the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) to bring new recognition to the most progressive artists in the State. Artists range from emerging to mid-career, often with distinguished records of exhibitions and awards that reflect recognition at national and international levels.


The exhibition is the result of intensive research and review of hundreds of artists each year. Artists present multiple works from recent years or large-scale installations created on-site that give visitors a fuller understanding of their vision and accomplishment. The Florida Prize always brings together artists of diverse backgrounds and varying practices and is a snapshot of the State’s cultural vitality.


Akiko Kotani was awarded the 2023 Florida Prize in Contemporary Art at the exhibition opening preview party on Friday, June 2, 2023. Kotani received a $20,000 prize, which was generously underwritten by Gail and Michael Winn, longtime supporters of the prize.


Elliot and Erick Jiménez, the first collaborative artists to be featured in the exhibition, were voted the winners of the People’s Choice Award. Along with bragging rights, the pair received a check for $2,500, also underwritten by Gail and Michael Winn.


Other artists featured in this year’s exhibition include: Cara Despain, Peggy Levison Nolan, Yosn.
