Each year over 420,000 people of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world come to The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art - delighting in the magnificent landscape and visiting our dynamic exhibitions. A global cultural destination, the museum is committed to preserving the legacy of John and Mable, while offering diverse programming and allowing access for all.
This passion for preserving their legacy is the motivation behind the launch of The Ringling Inspires: Honoring the Legacy and Building for the Future. To celebrate The Ringling’s nearly 100-year history, the museum has embarked on an historic $100 million fundraising campaign to ensure the legacy of John and Mable Ringling remains preserved for future generations of the Sarasota community, the state of Florida, and the world.
We have now raised $92 million towards our ambitious goal. Throughout the course of this effort we have opened five new facilities, we have created additional areas of strength in our permanent collections, and we have committed to serving and engaging all aspects of our community.
We are ever grateful to everyone that has supported the museum and look forward to celebrating with the entire commenting when our $100 million goal is reached and together take pride knowing that this great museum is poised to meet the needs of the 21st century.
