Center for Architecture Sarasota Announces WEEKLY ARCHITECTURAL TROLLEY TOURS
(Sarasota, FL)….All Aboard! Starting February 15, 2018 and running every Thursday morning from ten am until noon through May 3rd, 2018 and then from October 4th-December 27, 2018, Center for Architecture Sarasota (CFAS) will offer historical architectural trolley tours led by alternating local guides, Harold Bubil and Lorrie Muldowney.
Harold Bubil’s tours entitled, “Sarasota’s Architectural Gems (Northside)” will focus on architecturally significant buildings in Sarasota’s downtown area. Lorrie Muldowney’s tours will feature key Sarasota historic neighborhoods such as Burns Court, Laurel Park, Rosemary District, and downtown Sarasota.
Harold is the retired real estate columnist for the Herald Tribune who is known for his engaging and entertaining talks and tours featuring Florida buildings.
Lorrie is the former Sarasota County’s Historical Resources Specialist and Manager of the Sarasota County History Center (SCHC).
Each tour will take visitors through the colorful history of Sarasota combining interesting anecdotes and information about the world renown architects, neighborhoods, and significant developers who created Sarasota’s architectural legacy.
“We are delighted to be able to offer these popular tours, said Tammy Hauser, CFAS Executive Director. “Our past tours have sold out immediately so we thought it was time to offer them more regularly to meet demand,” she added.
Tour size is limited to 30 people and the cost is $35 for CFAS Members and $45 for nonmembers. The tours begin and end at CFAS, 265 South Orange Ave. allowing attendees time to visit the free exhibits in the CFAS gallery before or after the tour. Parking is free. Our current exhibit on display through April 14, 2018 is Brooks & Scarpa’s ORDINARY AND EXTRAORDINARY: The Architecture of Heightened Awareness, an interactive exploration of the design process and a culmination of twenty-five years of work.
