Remembering a Colony of Artists
In 1946, Annie Solomon settled in Sarasota with her husband, artist Syd Solomon. At the suggestion of Alfred Barr, Solomon’s work was the first by a contemporary artist to be exhibited and collected by the Ringling Museum. Other artists followed, and the Sarasota Artist Colony was born.
The Collecting Recollections series features fascinating people with fascinating stories to tell: about their lives, the Museum, the Circus, Sarasota – and more. Don’t miss these intriguing, informal and informative interview sessions.
Collecting Recollections is made possible in part through the generosity of Linnie E. Dalbeck Memorial Foundation Trust.
