Thursdays, April 17 – May 8, 2014
$8 members/ $10 non-members
Serious “high” art and popular “low-brow” art have conjoined in large part because of the melding of intellectual fashions with the entertainment and information industries. This 4-part series examines the shift of emphasis in contemporary advanced art and gives clarity to the larger cultural consequences of this new thinking.

Light Bulb Drive – Still going on!
We need 30 more bulbs to make it happen
Art Center Sarasota is transitioning from halogen to LED in the galleries’ track lights.
LED bulbs have a more even light spread and intensity then halogens, providing better lighting for the artwork, and requires less bulbs to light the same amount of wall space. It only takes 3 LED bulbs to light the same amount of space that 5 halogen bulbs light.
