Museum Education intern Zida Wang offers a reflection on Howie Tsui: Retainers of Anarchy exhibition, finding connections between the artist’s multicultural background and the artwork, as well as sharing his own experiences as a Chinese student studying in the United States.
The Ringling Community Gallery is a free public exhibition space dedicated to displaying works of art produced by local community-based, nonprofit or student groups. Exhibitions rotate on a regular basis and allow artists of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to share their work with The Ringling’s visitors.
The artists featured here participated in online programs such as ROAR (Ringling Order of Art Readers) and FAM (Family Art Making) or made art through our Where Everyone Belongs outreach program. Our Community Gallery is always free and open to the public! Please let our visitor services staff know upon arrival that you will be visiting the gallery to receive a family wristband.
High school art students were invited to respond to the exhibition Manuel Álvarez Bravo: Specters and Parables at The Ringling by photographing the familiar in a new light. See the winning photographs in the Community Art Gallery, and all submissions in this online gallery.
For the first time in over sixty years, one of the most impressive works of art in The Ringling’s collection will return to view. Conservation of the painting was supported by The Getty Foundation Conserving Canvas Initiative.
