Those of us who know and love Sarasota are proud of our local arts and culture scene. We are fortunate to have arts organizations in all sizes and disciplines, quality K-12 arts education, and higher education focused on the arts.
The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County strives to be the umbrella organization that supports local arts and cultural through advocacy, promotion, and funding opportunities. We know that we have a special community and we want to ensure that it continues to thrive and grow.
But how did Sarasota become this bustling hub of creativity? Our ‘Sarasota Creators’ series remembers those individuals who helped shape this enviable arts community. By reflecting on our foundations we can appreciate our present and be inspired for an even greater future.
