Guided by the CDC, and in support of our collective efforts to prevent further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) by mitigating public gathering opportunities that might enhance exposure, the Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College will be temporarily closed effective 5pm March 13th until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will keep you posted. Please check out our website for further content in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you again soon in the Galleries, but meantime, stay safe and remain in contact.

Photography

Taking and sharing of photos is encouraged for personal use only. Permissions will vary based on the exhibition as per the artist’s copyright. The use of flash photography, tripods, and “selfie sticks” are not permitted. Videography is not permitted. Commercial photography, including film requiring equipment or exclusive use of an area is prohibited without a permit.

Drawing in the Galleries

Drawing in the galleries is a centuries old tradition. We hope you will be so inspired here at the Museum. While visitors are welcome to sketch in the galleries, we ask that you use only pencil (no ink or paint) and sketchbooks no larger than 8 ½ x 11.

Food and Beverages

Food and beverages are not allowed in the Museum galleries. Outside food and beverages are not permitted on the Museum campus.

Respect the Art

“Don’t touch, climb or sit on, kick, hit, or lick the art” (unless otherwise directed by the artist or Museum.) We love art and know that you do, too. So, please help us protect the work. Artwork can be very fragile and easily damaged by just the oils in your fingers and hands. We recommend keeping an arm’s length distance from the work.

School Groups

For P-12 school group tours, please email groups@sarasota.art

We would be happy to reunite you with your lost items. Please email lostandfound@sarasota.art
