This replica by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation of the 1952 Walker Guest House, designed by Paul Rudolph, presents one of the hallmarks of the "Sarasota School" of modernism.
These galleries present an overview of some of the major projects with artists that have taken place in the first five years of the Art of Our Time program. In addition to the significant acquisitions of art for the permanent collection made by the museum, a number of important donations have also been included.
Organized by The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, in partnership with The Ringling, this major exhibition will feature more than 80 objects, many on loan from prestigious institutions across the US and Europe including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Louvre.
Territories: Photography, Space, and Power explores the myriad ways in which spaces are organized by cultural forces and political power.
As early as the 1840s, circus impresarios understood the importance of the parade as a way to impress potential audiences. Enjoy a selection of posters dating from 1848 to 1920 and imagine the excitement of the “The Most Magnificent Street Spectacle Ever Seen,” the circus parade.
This exhibition features original posters spanning the history of this singular brand, giving us another opportunity to marvel at a few of the amazing talents that have performed for the Greatest Show on Earth.
Demonstrating The Ringling’s continuing commitment to the study of Asian art, Eternal Offerings showcases nearly 100 Chinese bronze objects from the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
