The Fine Arts Society of Sarasota was organized 1969 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to support and stimulate appreciation of the arts in Sarasota County. We accomplish this through our community and education outreach grants and scholarships, totaling in the aggregate over $75,000 in 2016, and numerous other community activities.
The Fine Arts Society’s permanent art collection is on permanent display in Sarasota’s Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Over the years, the Fine Arts Society has acquired a collection of 51 works by Florida artists, several of national importance. The collection contains works dating from the 1930’s to the present day.
The Fine Arts Society, in conjunction with the Van Wezel, now offers docent led Art & Backstage Tours on the first Tuesday of the month. These tours give both residents and visitors an opportunity to view, learn and interact with our docents, while enjoying the Fine Arts Society’s Permanent Art Collection and discovering the inner workings of the Van Wezel.
