Schedule of Events
Circle and VIP Exhibition Preview and Reception - Storytelling: French Art from the Horvitz Collection 
Wednesday, Sept 5 @ 5:30-7:30 PM 

Invitation only, RSVP by August 30: 941-359-5700 x1-3804 or laura.cook@ringling.org

Circle Members are invited to enjoy a cocktail reception and preview the Exhibition, Storytelling: French Art from the Horvitz Collection. Storytelling unites two exhibitions selected from one of the world’s finest private collections of French art: Imaging Text:French Drawings for Book Illustration from The Horvitz Collection, and Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century French Paintings from The Horvitz Collection. Storytelling will feature 60 drawings and 10 related prints for book illustration, created between the 16th and 19th centuries, as well as a selection of 10 paintings. With subjects ranging from mythological and religious scenes to more playful genre imagery, these stunning works offer a rich overview of the narrative tradition in French art.

Storytelling is curated by Alvin L. Clark, Jr., Curator, The Horvitz Collection and The J.E. Horvitz Consultative Curator, Harvard Art Museums. 


Behind the Scenes with Coco Fusco Reception
Thursday, Oct 11 @ 5:30-7:30 PM
Keith D. and Linda L. Monda Gallery for Contemporary Art

This event is by invitation only, an RSVP will be available at a later date.

We are pleased to extend Circle Members the opportunity to meet internationally-acclaimed interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco, and preview her solo exhibition of video work, Twilight, exploring the current political and social climate in Cuba as the Revolution enters its twilight years. 

Organized by The Ringling, Twilight will premiere Fusco’s newest project, the video Vivir en junio con la lengua afuera (To Live in June with Your Tongue Hanging Out) and the sculpture Tin Man of the Twenty-First Century. These works were made possible by her 2016 Greenfield Prize commission. 

This exhibition has been generously supported, in part, by the Amicus Endowment, the Bob and Diane Roskamp Endowment, the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation Ringling Museum Endowment, and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Foundation. 

Art of Our Time is supported by Gulf Coast Community Foundation

Circle Member Exhibition Preview and Reception - Woodblock Prints from Postwar Japan
Wednesday, Nov 14 @ 5:30-9:00 PM
- 5:30 PM Cocktail Reception and Gallery Preview
- 7:00 PM Dinner at the Center for Asian Art

This event is by invitation only, an RSVP will be available at a later date.

Western eyes have admired Japanese prints since the mid-19th century, but as the nation began to rebuild itself after the Second World War, this medium was also transformed. The works
featured in this exhibition speak of the interplay of art, identity, a changing geopolitical climate, and personal ties over the latter half of the twentieth century. Join Dr. Rhiannon Paget for a preview of this extraordinary exhibition drawn from the Museum’s rich holdings of postwar Japanese prints and local collections. 

Special thank you to Douglas B. Thweatt for the establishment of the Paul Grootkerk Memorial Endowment for exhibition support. Support for this exhibition has been generously provided in part by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation Ringling Museum Endowment and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Foundation.


If you are not a Circle member and are interested in attending these events please contact Sharon at 941-359-5821 or sharon.freddes@ringling.fsu.edu for more information.
