Ringling Underground brings block-party fun to museum in Sarasota

February 7, 2013 

Following a hugely successful debut, Ringling Underground begins its second year at the Ringling Museum today with another batch of block-party fun featuring an exciting mash-up of live music and art, plus food and cash bar.

Entrance costs absolutely nothing if you're a college student and for the rest of the adult population, a mere $10.

Sarasota experimental chamber pop duo Bard and Mustache, Tampa indie band Zulu Wave and Gainesville psychedelic rock outfit Morningbell perform at the chic bash running from 8-11 p.m. in the Courtyard of the Museum of Art.

In addition to soaking up the sonics, mingling and maybe even dancing, attendees can view the Ringling's Paolo Veronese exhibition and get lost in Joseph's Coat, the largest skyspace by leading contemporary artist James Turrell. There will also be assorted "Art on the Lawn."

Ringling Underground continues on the first Thursdays in March and April.

Details: 8-11 p.m. Feb. 7, Courtyard of the Ringling Museum, 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota. Tickets: Free for all college students with identification, $10 for adults, and $5 for children ages 6-17. Information: 941-359-5700 or www.ringling.org
