The Sarasota Museum of Art presents This is What Happened: Art Since the 1960s,
a lively and engaging conversation on contemporary art.




The 1960s were a time of radical societal change. Art was both a reflection of the times, and often an instigator of change. Leading up to the opening of the Museum exhibitions program, we will have a series of talks and lectures examining the avant-garde roots of contemporary art, to shed some light on the origins of art production today. This series will be a casual, salon-style conversation. So whether you’re an expert, or new to contemporary art, everyone is welcome and encouraged to share thoughts and engage in the conversation. Join Executive Director Anne-Marie Russell and special guest Dr. Matthew McLendon, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

Registration for this event is now closed.  If you have any questions please call 941-309-7662.  Thank you.
