Sarasota Unveils New Canvas

Thanks to the collaboration between the Sarasota School District, Dr. Larry Thompson and the Ringling College of Art and Design and a group led by Linda Dickinson and Wendy Surkis, the former Sarasota High reopened to the public Saturday, Dec. 14, at 10 a.m. as the Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College.

The project took nearly $30 million in private investments, and resulted in repurposing the 1926-era school into a contemporary art museum, while also serving as a new home to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Ringling College.      

Rotating art exhibitions will be curated by Anne-Marie Russell. Children 17 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.  The museum is also offering free admission for active military, veterans, public safety officers and local college students. General admission is $15.  Pictured above is Lillian Sands.
