Three Broward artists have been named recipients of the 2022 South Florida Cultural Consortium (SFCC) Awards, given to preeminent South Florida artists through the SFCC 2021-2022 Visual and Media Artists Program. The three Broward artists are among this year’s 12 award recipients, including six artists from Miami-Dade County and two from Palm Beach County. The awards conferred at the $15,000 or $7,500 level are among the most significant honors earned by local visual and media artists in the United States. The three Broward artists have each received $15,000.
The 2022 SFCC recipients in South Florida are:
Broward County: Francesco Lo Castro, Carrington Ware, and Addison Wolff
Miami-Dade County: Farley Aguilar, Nereida Garcia-Ferraz, Moira Holohan, Beatriz Monteavaro, Ema Ri, and Asser St Val
Palm Beach County: Gabino Castelan and Carin Wagner
Monroe County: Victoria Mata
For the last 34 years, the SFCC, a regional initiative supporting the arts governed by an Interlocal Agreement, has awarded over $4 million in grants to more than 300 artists. In addition to receiving the funding, the artists participate in an exhibition hosted and organized by a visual arts institution in one of the five counties. A show featuring the work of the 2022 recipients will take place at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, with an anticipated opening in April 2023. All of this year’s recipients were selected through a two-tier panel process, including the participation of regional and national arts experts.
