Tickets On Sale for 2019 SarasotaMOD Weekend

Arts & Culture


Event tickets are now on sale for the 2019 SarasotaMOD Weekend, a mid-century modern architecture festival celebrating the legacy of the “Sarasota School," presented by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation. The theme of the sixth annual festival this year is “Sarasota in the Sixties,” and will focus on the next generation of Sarasota School architects—Carl Abbott, Joe Farrell, Frank Folsom Smith, Tim Seibert and Jack West—and their designs after the first wave in the 1950s. The event will take place November 8-10.

The SarasotaMOD Weekend opening party will take place from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the recently opened Sarasota Modern Hotel. On Saturday, November 9, architect Frank Folsom Smith will present the event’s keynote lecture, “Work of the 1960s,” during a breakfast session at Holley Hall, located in the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center. A panel discussion, “Sarasota Architecture in the Sixties,” will be moderated by Christopher Domin and feature panelists Carl Abbott, Joe Farrell, Lorrie Muldowney and Harold Bubil. Attendees will also hear a presentation by John McCarthy, local historian and Executive Director of Historic Spanish Point, and view the 1965 promotional film David of Sarasota. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be self-guided tours of the Lido Shores neighborhood, as well as Siesta Key trolley tours, Downtown trolley tours, and a trolley tour of Southgate, which in the 1960s was developed from citrus groves into the suburban-like single-family housing neighborhood it is today. Throughout the weekend, an exhibition opening “Frank Folsom Smith: Work of the 1960s” will be displayed at Sarasota Art Center.
