Things To Do Around Siesta Key: March 2023 Edition

March is here! A time for wearing green, inviting spring and warmer weather. We are so excited to share what’s in store for you this month in Sarasota! From textile masterpieces to block party palooza’s to a red carpet Oscars viewing - we got it all! Join us as we take you through everything exciting this March. 

A Beautiful Mess: Weavers & Knotters of the Vanguard

Experience tangled artworks that push the boundaries of textile-based work at the Sarasota Art Museum’s new installation - A Beautiful Mess. Utilizing rope, yarn, clay and wire, this roster of women artists create sculptures that explore personal and political ideals that freely break the rules to create beautiful artworks. 

Browse this exhibition along with many more riveting works at the Sarasota Art Museum. Open from 10 am - 5 pm, Monday - Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm. Purchase your tickets here.

Gods and Lovers: Paintings and Sculptures from India

Experience authentic Indian paintings from as far back as the 16th century in this brand new exhibition at the Ringling Museum of Art. Characterizing scenes in Hindu scripture, these intricate miniature paintings were given to the royal courts of Northern and Western India for decoration. Years later, we embrace just how intricate these depictions are of the scripture. Weaving together the tales of divine love, heroism, vengeance, and earthly splendor, we get to take a deeper look at the depths of Hinduism. 

Experience this, and many other exhibitions at the Ringling Museum of Art. Purchase your tickets here.
