The Founders Club Blog

A Guide to the Arts in Sarasota

Tranquility, relaxation, and refreshing repose are all words used to describe Sarasota's premier golf and country club community, The Founder’s Club. Within 700 acres of stunning landscape nests just 262 homes, where residents play, socialize and live the highest quality lifestyle. But that’s just the beginning. Sarasota is home to a vibrant and eclectic arts scene that features museums, performances, film festivals and more.

Here are just a few of the Arts and Cultures offerings available:

Fine Art Realized and Revered

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is an extraordinary architectural feat that isn't to be missed. Housed within are 31 galleries boasting a wide array of works from contemporary and modern masters to history's most celebrated artists. Visit the Reuben's gallery or Joseph's Coat Skyspace designed by artist James Turrell. For lighter, but no less artistic fare, The Ringling Circus Museum is a feast for the eyes and senses, offering historical circus artifacts and hands-on experiences the entire family will delight in.

Performance for the Cultivated Enthusiast

Live performances abound in Sarasota, where a true patron of the arts can revel in nuanced, professional artistry. The Asolo Repertory Theatre is world-renowned and known for giving nothing but the highest quality performances.

The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall hosts musical, theatre and dance tours from around the globe. The Sarasota Ballet Company is the only professional ballet company on Florida's Gulf Coast.

Festival of Film

No cultural nerve center as well-rounded as Sarasota's would be without its own film festival. As such for 10 days each year, over 180 films are shown in every genre of production. Variety magazine calls it the “acme of regional festivals.” For supporters and lovers of film, Sarasota's Film Society offers membership to support the best in film from education to entertainment.
