SMOA has achieved its initial fundraising goal. Renovations have begun and a national search for an Executive Director is underway.

Thank you to each and every donor, sponsor, foundation, volunteer, the media, the SMOA Board of Directors, Dr. Larry R. Thompson (President of Ringling College), the many staff, administrators and faculty at Ringling College, Ringling College Trustees, PNC Wealth Management, all of the ARTmuse artists and museum professionals...YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

The dream of the SMOA baby has come to life. Please take pride in having helped to add an extraordinary ‘jewel’ to the cultural landscape of Sarasota. 

Anticipated opening: first half of 2016.

With heartfelt gratitude and deep appreciation,

Wendy G. Surkis
President, SMOA
