You Can Day
Sunday 28 February
Why do we have this day? The mission of the Museum is to be for all. We are keenly aware of the economic statistics of our community and our region, and we are conscious of the stresses and challenges faced by many. We also deeply believe that art cultivates empathy, that visiting an art museum can inspire and delight, and that exploring new art and new ideas can enrich lives. We have this day so everyone can benefit from the art and the artist’s wisdom.
While admission to the Museum is $15, on Pay What You Can Day, you will choose the amount you pay based on your ability and capacity. Any amount, or no amount, is welcome, and we hope that you will be as generous as you are able to be. Your support allows the Museum to serve ALL.
|Support for the Pay What You Can Day is provided by the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation.|

The Memory Project
The Sarasota Art Museum has taken on stewardship of the history of the former Sarasota High School building. Learn about the history of the site and help keep the memory of the site—prior to recent transformation—alive.
This is What Happened: Art Since the 60s
This series takes us through the world of art history from the tumultuous 60s to the radical 90s. These lectures are open to the general public but double as a core component of the Museum’s docent program.
Join us to hear from the artists about the concepts behind their art displayed at the Museum.
