Wanda Raimundi-Ortize has been selected from hundreds of Florida artists to participate in the Florida Art Prize in Contemporary Art exhibition at the Orlando Museum of Art. The exhibition will be on view June 12 – September 6, 2015.

The Florida Art Prize in Contemporary Art is an annual exhibition that focuses on the production of contemporary art in the State, while also providing new scholarship with an accompanying exhibition catalog. The purpose of the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art is to bring a new level of recognition to the State’s most progressive artists and to encourage their ongoing contribution to the State’s cultural vitality.

Each year the Museum invites ten artists for the exhibition based on criteria that includes artistic excellence, engagement with significant ideas and achievement that is demonstrated by a history of exhibitions and awards. Additionally, one artist will receive the Florida Prize, a significant monetary award.
