September 1, 2021


Yanira Collado receives the 2021 South Florida Cultural Consortium award.

Collado will participate in the 2021 South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Artists Fellowship Exhibition, Under the Florida Sun.

This year’s exhibition opens on Thursday, September, 16th 3-9 p.m. at FAU University Gallery, and will remain on view in the Ritter Art Gallery and the Schmidt Center Gallery through Saturday, Oct. 30. Each year, the South Florida Cultural Consortium awards 12 $15,000 or $7,500 Visual and Media Arts Fellowships. Artists residing in Florida’s five southeastern counties are eligible to compete for this nationally significant individual artist award which means the “Consortium” fellowship is hotly contested each year by the region’s best visual and media artists. The exhibition presents recent work by the 12 artists awarded a 2021 fellowship and marks the seventh time since 2001 that the University Galleries have had the honor of presenting this prestigious annual contemporary art exhibition.
