Art Making takes place in the Visitor's Pavilion, where our Children's Welcome Center is transformed into an art studio for the evening. We will be exploring different materials that artists use to create art. We provide the materials, you provide the vision. All ages are encouraged to participate!
ROAR! is a storytime program, designed to engage toddlers and preschoolers in activities that connect art with early literacy. This program is free and no registration is required.

The ability to cast tools, weapons, and works of art in bronze was so important to the development of civilization that we refer to an entire era as The Bronze Age. The Ringling is rich in resources to demonstrate the methods of casting that were developed in different cultures.
The Ringling photography collection is rich in phenomenal portraits by artists such as Cindy Sherman and Richard Avedon. Join museum staff as we introduce you to these artists and their subjects.
Be a part of this lively discussion among artists and curators from Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota counties. Through collaboration, they have "bridged" the gap and presented three exhibitions consisting of works that reflect the diversity and creativity of our contemporary art scene.

It's hot, it's humid? Join us for a river cruise, a visit to a theme part, an idyllic picnic, and other summer pursuits without leaving the cool temperatures of the galleries.
