The gorgeous space of The Ulla R. and Arthur F. Searing Wing features traveling and special exhibitions from around the globe. These changing displays expand the Museum’s offerings, often complementing the permanent collection. Exhibitions range from popular blockbusters to intimate collections. The Searing Wing was completed in early 2007 with an exterior that seamlessly continues the Museum of Art, but with a state-of-the-art interior suitable for shows of all kinds.
The space is named in honor of the Searings for a $6.5 million donation pledged to the Ringling Endowment. Additional programming support has been provided by the Amicus Foundation Inc., William G. Selby and Marie Selby Foundation, Vernon and Sandy Buchanan, Bob and Diane Roskamp, and Mark P. Famiglio.
