Financial Summary
 
 
Projected Revenue $664,417.00
Projected Expenses $638,373.00
Impact Statement
Accomplishments:
1. In 2014/15, Art Center Sarasota made facility improvements thanks to generous supporters:
  • Painting and cleaning the building exterior (still in progress)
  • A new mural on the back of the building with signage to alert people of the organization location
  • A renovation of the kitchen which was originally installed in the 1960's and much needed
2. Finances were again in the black with a significant increase in budget.
The center remains debt free and a good solid investment
 
3. The youth programs have increased and are starting to build an audience. Summer camp was "sold out" for the ten weeks it was in session with waiting lists for many weeks
 
Goals for the upcoming year:
1. Offer evening classes to reach booomers and millenials who work and stay at home parents who cannot participate during the day.

2. Increase partnerships and collaborations with other organizations and for profit businesses to increase audience.

3. Produce a short informational video about the center for many uses. Primarily it will be used to educate interested donors and event attendees about the offerings and the need for a community art center.
 
4. Revisit the Strategic Plan and update
 
5. Increase budget for advertising and marketing to attract more visitors and students
Needs Statement
1. Confluence Series of Exhibitions Developed by the Art Center  and Sister Cities Assoc to create a cultural bond through the visual arts. A yearly exhibit highlighting emerging and mid-career artists who live in the city are featured. In 2014, we featured Israeli artists.
This year in May, we are producing an exhibition featuring artists from the area of Perpignan, France. Funding is needed to continue this collaboration on a yearly basis. In 2016 an exhibition from Merida, Mexico is planned. Approximately $10-15,000 is needed each year to bring the exhibit and a visiting artist to Sarasota.

2. Slice of Art funding for 2015/16 school year. Half day field trips for public school students to learn about art, make artwork and eat pizza. We have funding of $2,500 for the 2015/2016 school year. An additional $9,500 is needed to ensure enough tours to meet the needs of the schools
 
3. New Signage. A lit sign in the parking lot in front of the Art Center visible to traffic on US41 to make it easier to find. Active graphics sign approximately $40-$50,000
 
4. Front door automatic opener for ADA compliance. Many of our guests and students are in need of door assist for wheelchairs, walkers, and students carrying art supplies and canvases. Approximately $2-$4,000.
Background Statement

Art Center Sarasota was the first arts and cultural institution in Sarasota. Founded in 1926 as the “Sarasota Art Association” by Marcia Rader, Art Supervisor for the Sarasota County Schools. In the early years, the group met monthly and sponsored exhibits in rented facilities. The Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1943 and has been in its current location in the Sarasota Bayfront Cultural District since 1949.

Art Center Sarasota today is a membership based organization but welcomes the entire community with affordable and accessible curated and juried exhibitions, art education for adults and youth, outreach for underserved youth and culturally related public programming.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

What makes a community a great place to live? Lots of things do: the people, the environment, protection of natural resources, opportunity, good governance, noted architecture . . . and the arts. Sarasota, a small town with a big love of arts is known for its long history of nurturing, supporting and celebrating our community artists. That support started almost ninety years ago with the Sarasota Art Association. It’s our Board’s duty to ensure that the Art Center continues to contribute to what makes Sarasota a great place to live in the United States of America.

One of the things that make the Art Center a continued success is the ability to adapt to the continuously-changing environment. When school budgets decrease the funding for art education, students become deprived. When a retiree becomes complacent, the joy of life leaves. When a working person can’t find enough time to express their creativity, they become stagnant. The Art Center has had great leadership through the years, both at the Board and Staff levels that have not only identified the voids that can stifle creativity and the experience of art but also forged ahead with new and interesting programs, exhibitions and experiences that tantalize the senses, stretch the imagination and make us laugh out loud with such uncontrollable laughter that one could spill the glass of wine they would be holding during our exhibition openings.

It’s for this reason (not the Art Center wine but the laughter, imagination and tantalizing of my senses) that I volunteer for the organization. I enjoy seeing artists create, exhibit – expose themselves as it may be, learn, unlearn and enjoy. I’ve always thought that without the ability to be creative and learn, one becomes complacent and loses the luster of life. I choose to be lustrous!

Sincerely,

Ramsey J. Frangie
Chairman
Art Center Sarasota

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Art Center Sarasota provides Sarasota with access to the visual arts as artists, students, collectors or those who appreciate art. The organization is membership based but welcomes everyone to participate in the activities.
The Art Center has four galleries that rotate exhibitions in seven cycles throughout the year. The public is welcome to view the exhibitions at no charge. Exhibitions are considered for artistic, cultural and diverse appeal to visitors. The curated exhibitions, which are group or solo shows, expose the Sarasota community to new and different types of artwork by established professional artists. Juried exhibitions in each cycle provide opportunities for both established and emerging artists to show and sell their work.
The Art Center has a large education department offering a multitude of adult art classes and workshops throughout the year taught by highly regarded local and visiting instructors. Students come to the Art center from all over the world to learn from the master instructors. The center also partners with lecturers, musicians, dance, theater and literary groups to offer cultural programs in the atrium gallery at very affordable prices.
This year the new classroom yielded a high return as many additional classes could be held. Both instructors and students appreciated the natural light and artificial daylight that made a difference in the the work they produced. We hope to be able to change the lighting in the main classroom this year.

“Creative Kids” will expand the summer camp to 12 weeks this summer and offer an additional camp simultaneously called "Emerging Artists" for those campers who are getting too old for the regular camp. This will enable them to continue to develop their talents with more skilled projects.
Saturday drop in art class and the after school Teen Portfolio class have been steadily building throughout the school year. These programs, along with the Slice of Art outreach program which is donor funded at no cost to the schools, helps young people to develop their imagination. We believe that nurturing creativity in youth helps them in adulthood with problem solving and innovation in whatever career they choose.

What makes Art Center Sarasota unique is that it is the only organization in Sarasota that has such diverse, accessible opportunities for audiences to experience culture through visual art. The fashion show/fundraiser "iconcept" with outfits created by artists from unconventional materials has now gotten the recognition from the community for its uniqueness.
This year we are partnering with theMall at UTC and Saks Fifth Avenue for an upscale "art couture" event right in the mall on February 21, 2016.
 
This year we were again honored to be recognized as a finalist in the PBS/WEDU “Be More Enriched” Award for outstanding non-profit cultural organization. We are also a Finalist for the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce “Cultural Organization of the Year” Award.
 
I am so proud to lead the staff at Art Center Sarasota, who through their hard work, dedication and caring, have made the organization a vital part of so many people’s lives.
Programs
Description
SLICE OF ART
The Slice of Art program at Art Center Sarasota provides fun and educational art experiences for students in Sarasota through exciting guided tours of Art Center Sarasota’s exhibitions and hands-on art making activities.

Tours for students in grades 3-12 are designed to spark the student’s imagination. They include connections to science, social studies, and other subject areas. The coordinator works with teachers to develop curriculum connections and leads discussions in the galleries relevant to issues in student’s lives. After the tour, students enjoy a pizza lunch and refreshments followed by a 45 minute art-making workshop. The Slice of Art program is listed in the Sarasota County School System’s EdExplore SRQ as an approved activity for outside classroom learning.
Each Tour for students serves 20 to 30 participants per visit and includes: art supplies; bus transportation; one substitute teacher; a Slice of Art teacher; pizza and refreshments.
Budget $12,000
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Visual Arts
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) At-Risk Populations Elderly and/or Disabled
Short Term Success The students who participate in the tours will have a better understanding of the visual arts and enhance their appreciation and the need for arts and culture in our lives. As adults they will continue to seek out the arts as a vital part of their whole being after having a positive experience as children.
Long Term Success Discussing and creating art builds self-esteem and self-confidence by encouraging young people to find their voice.  Through the program, students engage in creative thinking in terms of choice and possibility. Creative youth will become the adults who will lead our country in innovation in all fields of enterprise. By involving youth in the process of creativity, they learn how to solve practical problems for many applications besides making beautiful objects.

Art education makes a tremendous impact on the developmental growth of every child and has proven to help level the “learning field” across socio-economic boundaries. Studies find that experiences in both the visual and performing arts help students develop concentration, focus, commitment to follow through with tasks, and interest in their own learning.
Program Success Monitoring To monitor the impact of the program, students, teachers and program directors are asked to complete Evaluation Questionnaires at the end of each visit. The evaluation responses provide important information about the strengths and weaknesses of the program, the components the students find most meaningful, and to what degree they value the educational experience.
Program Success Examples “I was impressed that my students who are low level readers were able to express their thoughts so eloquently. Art is a powerful thing. These kids are at risk of dropping out, yet they spoke at such a high level of thinking that I can only advocate how important art is in education.” -Lori Burton Phoenix Academy

A student, completely disengaged until he came across a painting of a graveyard was asked "how does this painting make you feel?" He told a sad story about losing his grandmother and how much he missed her. The other students listened, asking more about his grandmother. Students shared stories of their own losses and sadness. After the tour, the counselor was in tears saying “I have tried for weeks to get Emilio to open up and participate but I have been unsuccessful. I felt like giving up on him. Finally he opened up, shared his feelings and painted the most beautiful picture. I know now that it is through art that I can reach these students.” -Gulf Coast Marine Institute
Description
 EXHIBITIONS
Art Center Sarasota showcases emerging and established artists in curated and juried exhibitions throughout each season. Exhibitions support the Art Center's mission to provide opportunities for creative expression and art appreciation.
Goals:
1.Offer curated and juried exhibitions that represent a diverse range of art mediums, a broad spectrum of social significance, and artists that come from diverse locations and backgrounds.
2. Encourage visitors to return throughout the year by bringing new and different exhibitions to the Art Center from local, national and international sources.
3. Build bridges between the Art Center and community organizations by collaborating and allowing others to showcase their organization to visitors.
4. Elevate the prestige of local artists by exhibiting and offering their work for sale alongside nationally recognized artists. Sales of artwork to visitors will increase the economic impact for the artistic community. 
Budget $120,000

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults K-12 (5-19 years) US& International
Short Term Success
Each exhibition cycle (7 per year) is an opportunity for new successes such as:
1. Exhibitions that gain media attention for an individual artist or curated show. This usually brings more visitors to the center increasing the number of people who view the show.
2. Artists who sell work as a validation of their appeal as an artist.
3. Visitors to the center who have never been in before and discover the value of what the Art Center provides to the community.
4. The opportunity for viewers to enrich their lives and understanding of the world through artistic expression.
 
Long Term Success
The long term success of the Exhibitions Program:
 
1. Provide more exhibition opportunities for established and emerging artists to help them gain widespread recognition and have a place to sell their work.
2. Increase viewers by providing high quality exhibitions of works that have never been shown in Sarasota.  Viewers have an opportunity to see over  25 unique exhibits of artistic, cultural and educational merit per year. Increased visitor numbers help the Art Center gain higher visibility and importance in the community resulting in greater support. Last year we had over 40,000 visitors for the education and exhibition programs.
 
3.Continue collaborations with other art groups which allows for more diverse shows reaching more artists and audiences who can benefit from the program.
 
4. Encourage more people to use their creative skills and imagination to express themselves through art resulting in a healthier, balanced life.
 
 
Program Success Monitoring
The program success is measured by:
1. Visitor surveys which are filled out on a volunteer basis but encouraged by the staff. The surveys provide visitor demographics and a chance to comment on the exhibits.
2. The number of submissions to each juried show which fluctuates depending on the season. Records are kept to evaluate trends in number of submissions with regard to the time of year and theme of show.
3. Media recognition is an indicator of success.
4. Art Purchases indicate that the public finds the exhibitions of high quality and worth purchasing.
Program Success Examples
a) A young artist who consistently shows at the center, wins juried prizes and sells a lot of work has come to the attention of several gallery owners who want to show his work. His gained confidence enabled him to start an online portrait service which has become quite successful.
 
b) A high school age artist who volunteers in the summer art camp was encouraged to enter juried shows and has been accepted into them. She also received a full scholarship to Ringling College.
 
c) This year, one of our artists was selected by Saks Fifth Avenue to be featured in their new Sarasota and Puerto Rico stores. Saks purchased 36 pieces of work from this artist.
 
d) Another artist featured in the Black Box Project student initiative was able to gain exposure to the Sarasota community that sparked interest in purchasing his work and led him to collaborations with other cultural organizations.
Description
EDUCATION
This program consists of adult art classes and workshops and artist demonstrations plus youth art class and summer camp.
Over 50 adult classes are held in 6 week sessions with highly regarded instructors from the Sarasota area. Painting and mixed media are the most popular but unique offerings such as printmaking, bookmaking and jewelry are attracting more students because they are not widely taught elsewhere.
Workshops are 3-5 day intensive studies. Instructors are nationally or internationally known and travel to Sarasota to teach. Workshops are attended by local and seasonal residents as well as visitors who come to Sarasota from all over the world to learn.
The youth program“Creative Kids” includes 12 weekly sessions of summer camp and a Saturday afternoon class during the school year. This year a Teen Portfolio class and an Emerging Artist summer camp were added to provide students over 11 with supplemental art education.
Scholarships are offered when funding is available.

Short Term Success With each educational experience participants gain more knowledge and improve their skills. Interaction with instructors, who give personal critiques, helps students resolve issues with their work for a more successful finished piece. Making art always comes with frustration and joy. Student’s skill in using the chosen medium, color knowledge and simple design sense are areas that constantly improve with education. Many students take multiple sessions with the same instructor and some try a variety of instructor styles and mediums. In any case, students who return repeatedly indicate that the program is successful.
Long Term Success By participating in classes and workshops over time, an adult student’s skill level grows. Students often submit work from classes into the juried exhibitions at the Art Center. As they refine their skills, more work is accepted into the shows and sold in the gallery. This results in greater confidence in their talent as an artist. Many artists take classes to express themselves and work through emotional, physical or health issues. Creating art is shown to be great healing therapy. Class participation creates new friendships with others of similar interest. Many connections have been made over the years which have resulted in students having a feeling of belonging and acceptance as part of the Art Center family. Youth who participate in the programs develop their creative skills and imagination at a young age which helps in adulthood to think outside the box for problem solving and creative ideas.
Program Success Monitoring Most educational programs are monitored by surveys given upon completion of a class session or workshop. The surveys ask questions about their experiences. They rate the instructor, the quality of knowledge gained, and their satisfaction with the facility. Space given for commentary on likes and dislikes. These surveys help guide planning for future classes and workshops.
Another way of monitoring is through the attendance of classes and workshops. Instructors have a minimum and maximum number of students they need to teach the class. If attendance is at minimum we have to evaluate running the class again. Factors to consider are time of year and similar opportunities that are available.
Many students repeat classes with the same instructor which indicates that they are feeling a sense of accomplishment and are continually learning and developing new skills.
Program Success Examples The Education program has grown over the past two years. This is due to a better organized department with a skilled Education Director that chooses instructors, a well balanced mix of mediums offered based on demand, and provides great customer service. This results in less classes being cancelled. Students receive guidance on class choices based on their skill levels and types of medium they enjoy.
This year, beginner level classes were offered in painting and drawing in order to learn techniques as novices and not be intimidated by more advanced students. The students felt more comfortable and some have moved on to more advanced classes.
The Saturday youth class for ages 6-12, has grown in popularity to an average of nine students per week. Offered on a drop in basis, it gives young artists more time to be creative outside of school.
The summer camp program maxed out at 24 students each week in 2014.
A second camp is now available for those who have aged out of the "kids" group.

Comments
Program Comments by Organization
The educational programs have grown steadily. A very successful season of classes and workshops for adults was just completed. Only a few classes had to be cancelled for lack of attendance, which signaled to us that the diversity of offerings was excellent.
The youth programs, especially camp had a great turnout this year. The reputation for the camp, with many campers signed of for multiple weeks plus the affordability contributed to the success.
The Slice of Art program is still an important part of the curriculum in many art classes in the public schools. Teachers use the program to supplement arts education and comply with learning benchmarks required by the public school system. As always, funding is low for this program. Donations and grants are always being sought to keep the program going and provide as many opportunities for the schools as possible
The Exhibitions program has been ongoing for many generations since the founding of the Art Center in 1926. Funded partially through grants from the TDT (tourist development tax), additional funding is always needed to be able to bring noteworthy exhibits to the area.
Exhibitions, however have really raised the bar on the quality of work shown both in the curated shows and the local juried exhibitions. A steady stream of visitors can be seen in the galleries particularly during high season.

At the beginning of 2015 there was a turnover of members who were in conflict with each other and staff. Several new members have been added since then who are better suited to the needs of the center.
 
Careful consideration of talent, time, resources and ability to engage and be an ambassador for the organization are of utmost importance in building this new board for the future.
 
Several new members are being considered who meet this criteria. An effort will be made to bridge generations and increase diversity to reach a broader audience.
