There are many aspects to building a new art museum. The most visible is the curatorial program. In addition to the 15,000 square feet of dedicated exhibition space, there are numerous Curatorial Zones on the museum campus where visitors will experience and engage with art. How does one go about programming these spaces? How is the mission and vision of the institution articulated through the curatorial program? How do curators make decisions about what art to exhibit? What strategies are employed to reach and serve wide audiences and diverse stakeholders, both in our community and around the world? Join us for a presentation and interactive discussion about the formation of our communities' new art museum!
This is part of an ongoing series, Building a New Museum, designed to engage and inform the community about the mission, vision and operations of the Sarasota Museum of Art.
