Hargrove Contending for 2017 Florida Prize in Contemporary Art

Art professor Dana Hargrove is one of 10 artists featured in the Orlando Museum of Art’s 2017 Florida Prize in Contemporary Art exhibition. The exhibition opens on June 2 and will be on view through August 20.

The award and invitational exhibition recognizes the achievement and potential of Florida’s most progressive and exciting visual artists. A recent body of work that provides an in-depth view of their practice will represent each artist. The 2017 Florida Prize recipient will be announced at an opening preview party on June 2.

“As a group, these artists are responding to many of the difficult issues of the moment,” said Orlando Museum of Art Curator Hansen Mulford. “The Florida Prize in Contemporary Art is an opportunity to explore a range of ideas that are relevant today as expressed by these artists in exciting and visually provocative works of art.”
