Log Number: ARPML-250659-OMLS-22

The Sarasota Art Museum in Florida will expand digital opportunities for K–12 students. The museum, established by Ringling College of Art and Design to strengthen educational and cultural offerings in the Gulf Coast community, will create virtual tours of four exhibitions along with age-appropriate related curricular lessons for classroom use. For those schools that do not have broadband capability, the museum will make tours and lessons available via portable drives. Initially, the museum will target Title I and charter schools. Featured exhibitions from nationally and internationally renowned multicultural artists will span a spectrum of diverse ethnic, social, and geographic perspectives. These programs address an identified K-12 community need for virtual arts engagement opportunities created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
