CFP: Presentations, 2016 Sarasota Chapter Conference

The Southeast Chapter of ARLIS/NA is accepting proposals for presentations at the 2016 annual chapter conference, which will be held in Sarasota, Florida from November 16-18.

Since the time of Ponce de Leon, Sarasota has inspired exploration. Join us, along with our hosts at The Ringling, as we explore the emerald green Center for Asian Art at the Ringling Museum of Art, the mid-century modern architecture of the Sarasota School, and the bespoke design of the Alfred R. Goldstein Library at the Ringling College of Art and Design. Inspire your colleagues with a presentation, then let the natural beauty of Sarasota’s sunsets, the city’s stylish architectural treasures, and the aesthetic delights of The Ringling inspire you!
