The Outside the Box2 biennial event in 2014, featured installations by 37 artists from throughout Florida, attracted hundreds of art enthusiasts, and was covered extensively in local and Southeast Florida media.


The call for entries has just been released (deadline of November 1, 2015). Artists wishing to apply may find the application at:


Thirty five artists with the best proposals will be selected, and this call is offering even more in Best in Show monetary prizes. This temporary outdoor art happening will take place April 1 & 2, 2016, as part of the closing weekend festivities of Whitespace.




The distinctive and alternative format of the exhibit asks artists to propose a temporary work, suitable for outdoors that will respond creatively to the site, or be interactive in nature. The installations should interact with the unique landscape & outdoor environment, ranging from large-scale sculptures, interactive installations, inflatables, video art, performances, and more.





Lisa Rockford, an exhibiting artist & professor at Broward College, has worked with over 100 artists from South Florida and beyond. She has curated many Contemporary group exhibitions including The Triumph of Detritus, Humoritorium: The Art of Whimsy, and Appropriated Gender among others. Lisa Rockford was named a “Rising Star” in Gold Coast Magazine’s 2014 article, “40 under 40,” for her community building art events.



One of the most talked about works was a video installation by Cat Del Buono, titled “Swimming upstream.” Many onlookers did not realize they were not looking at a real pool of water in the ground. Video art by Cat Del Buono will be featured in Whitespace’s next annual exhibit which will open in November 2015. Please check the website for up-to-date seasonal programming.



The Outside the Box Biennial is sure to become one of the most significant and indispensable celebrations of visual art in South Florida, and will clearly be a spectacle of visual delights for all who attend. Artists who wish to participate may view examples from the 2012 and 2014 projects on – Gallery special projects.
