Art in Common Places: The Sidewalks We Traveled to Sarasota County

April 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Art in Common Places presents: A reading and Q&A with Kathryn and Jerome Chesley. From its birth as the center of ranching, to its growth into a city center, this community has traveled down many roads, bridges and walkways to get us to the Sarasota, we know today, as a center for the arts. Take a trip with us artistically and poetically as we travel down the roadways to see how the past 100 years have shaped our community.


The program will be rebroadcast as a Zoom on April 23, at 6:00

*** Art in Common Places***

Cynthia Burnell, Leslie Butterfield and Teresa Carson founded Art in Common Places because they believe art belongs to everyone. The program’s primary mission is to put art in public places—such as Laundromats, public housing, car washes, medical offices—so people can enjoy it in their everyday lives. The secondary mission is to facilitate live “collaborative conversations” between visual artists and poets to produce works of art that combine these talents. Art in Common Places will celebrate the centennial of Sarasota County by creating four broadsides focused on subjects related to the history of Sarasota and by offering presentations based on those broadsides in collaboration with Selby Library.
