O

n behalf of our entire

arts

and

cultural commu-

nity, I want to welcome you to Sarasota County. Now that you are here, it is time

to discover this magical community where artistic expression and inspiration meet. Just as you can dive into the crystal clear waters of Sarasota’s breathtaking beaches, use this guide to dive into our flourishing arts and cultural community. There are few other areas in the country that match the quality and quantity of artistic offerings available here. From North Port and Englewood to Venice and Sarasota, the area is bursting with top-notch performing arts halls, galleries, museums, art centers, botanical gardens, aquariums and universities. We have our own opera house, ballet, symphony orchestra, professional and community theatres and circus. If your interests include architecture, literary arts or poetry, you will find a mecca of opportunity for inspiration and personal fulfillment while you are here. We hope this guide will help you find and enjoy the collective energy of Sarasota’s arts and cultural community. If you need additional information, please contact our staff at the Arts and Cultural Alliance. We will be happy to help you in every way possible. Our contact information is: www.sarasotaarts.org | 941.365.5118 ext. 304.

P

resident George W. Bush rides into town. The Ringling International Arts Festival and Chalk Festival return. Lakewood Ranch hosts its first

Winterfest Music Festival. Holiday lights glitter at Selby Gardens. “The Bat” comes to Sarasota Opera; the Ballet is par excellence; Asolo Rep delights; and, a talented beauty raises the baton for Sarasota Orchestra. And this is just a smidgen of what’s happening. We’re busting with so many great things to do, who wouldn’t want to be here! So grab your marker and highlight your must-attend events, buy your tickets early, and get ready for an exciting new season. While you’re at it, let’s remember to thank the local businesses whose support helped make this guide possible as well as the many visionaries, arts supporters and artists who have helped make Sarasota/ Bradenton the number one and number two small cities in the US for the arts. We owe them all a huge thank you.
