Public Art


Sculpture has long been an integral part of Sarasota’s cultural legacy, and guests on the new Discover Sarasota Tours Public Art Tour will visit some of the city’s 57+ public art sculptures, monuments,and murals during this 90-minute air-conditioned tour. Between the authorized replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David which graces the courtyard of the Ringling Museum, John Henry’s Complexus (in front of One Sarasota Tower) and Seward Johnson’s Bayfront sculpture Unconditional Surrender, those on the tour will get a better sense of the artists, the stories and the history of public art in Sarasota from painter, public art expert and guide Jerome Chesley.

Public Art Tours run on the Wednesdays of February 6, March 6, 13, & 27, and April 3 & 10, from 1pm to 2:30pm. All tours depart from the DST Trolley Depot located at 1826 4th Street. Tour tickets and information can be found online at the website below.
