This illustrated lecture by Marissa Hershon, Curator of Ca’ d’Zan and Decorative Arts, will take a closer look at how Ca’ d’Zan came to be built in Sarasota and became nationally recognized soon after it was completed in 1926. The talk will explore a number of alterations made to the mansion from the museum’s early years and reexamine the presentation and interpretation of the architecture, interiors, and collection for public visitors over the decades. Recent research into the institution’s history, archival records and visual documentation of Ca’ d’Zan will be shared to contextualize this unique landmark building.
This program will be offered in-person in the Chao Lecture Hall, and virtually via Zoom. Please select your ticket accordingly.
Tickets will be available 30 days prior to the program.
