Free Docent-led Tours of Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA ARTmuse 2014 Project by Acclaimed Artist Lisa Hoke
The public is invited to view Lisa Hoke's transformation of discarded cardboard packaging materials into a colorful, one-of-a-kind work of art inside SMOA's future home at the historic Sarasota High School. SMOA is offering free docent-led tours of Hoke's recently-completed installation on weekends, February 8 – April 20, 2014, 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. The guided tours will also include "ORIGINS," the 2012 conceptual architecture exhibit created jointly by Ringling College of Art and Design and Sweet Sparkman Architects, and "Out in Front," Patrick Dougherty's landmark 2013 architectural installation on the High School grounds. Tours begin at the front steps of the historic Sarasota High School, 1001 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
