Coral Springs, FL (January 5, 2018) – Calling all artists: What inspires you? The Coral Springs Museum of Art wants to know! The Museum presents “Inspired By,” an open media exhibition from Saturday, February 10 – Friday, March 2, 2018, demonstrating artists’ individuality and creativity brought about by personal inspiration.

Artists are invited to submit up to two works to be considered for inclusion in this juried exhibition. Works will be judged and recognized by Museum Choice and People’s Choice. All selected works will then be displayed in the East Gallery beginning February 10, 2018. An official exhibition reception will be held Thursday, February 15, 2018 at
