Impact Statement
Accomplishments:
1. In 2013/ 2014, Art Center Sarasota made many necessary facility improvements thanks to generous supporters:
  • New air conditioning was installed in the large Atrium Gallery. Visitors and attendees at events can spend time in the atrium enjoying activities without overheating.
  • New, padded chairs were purchased to add to the comfort level and visitor experience.
  • Gallery 3 was renovated. Old black carpeting was removed from the walls and replaced with white floating gallery style walls. The gallery has a more professional look that also allows for larger pieces of artwork to be displayed.
  • An underused space was renovated as an additional classroom allowing for more classes to be held simultaneously providing more educational opportunities.
  • Painting and cleaning the building exterior (summer 2014)

2. Finances were on track throughout the year ensuring a good solid cash flow. The budget was increased to include more necessary staff such as a Development Director and Youth Coordinator.

3. Art Center Sarasota was honored with WEDU’s “Be More Enriched”, Arts & Culture Award that recognizes culturally-based organizations.

4. The Art Center hired Iris Starr as Development Director. Ms. Starr has a background in successful fundraising (American Cancer Society) and donor relations as well as business management (Saks Fifth Avenue General Manager) and will help to elevate the center's reach and visibility in the community.

Goals for the upcoming year:
1. Increase visibility of the center through the offering of thought provoking and unique exhibitions.

2. Continue to grow the daytime educational offerings and expand evening programs.

3. Expand the Slice of Art program to include more underserved adult groups with special needs.

4. Complete the Strategic and Communication plans

4. Continue to enhance people’s lives through arts and culture!
Needs Statement
1. Confluence Series of Exhibitions Confluence is an exhibition series developed by Art Center Sarasota and Sister Cities Association of Sarasota to create a cultural bond through the visual arts.
Each year a Confluence exhibition is produced to highlight one of the Sister Cities. A connection is made in the city to find emerging and mid-career artists who live and work in the region.
In 2014, the Art Center presented Confluence: Israel, a highly acclaimed exhibition of ten artists working in a variety of mediums. One of the young artists, as part of the program, came to Sarasota where lasting friendships were made and a greater understanding of our two cultures was formed.
Art Center Sarasota, in collaboration with Sister Cities Association of Sarasota and Alliance Française de Sarasota, will produce an exhibition featuring emerging artists from the area of Perpignan, France opening May 21, 2015 through June 26. Funds are needed to bring artwork and and an artist to Sarasota. The center has already raised $10,000 towards this year's exhibit and is in need of an additional $18,000 to make this a reality.

2. Slice of Art funding for 2015 school year. A grant of $2,500 was given by Designing Women Boutique.
Additional funds of $9,500 are needed to provide 24 tours this year for public school students.

3. Volunteers for all activities are needed: exhibitions, education, events, mailings, maintenance and front desk staffing.
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
Art Center Sarasota resonates with why I arrived in this City in 1978 as a Freshman in the Interior Design/ Space Planning department of what was Ringling School of Art and Design. I appreciate my environment and enjoy both three dimensional and two dimensional art. When asked to consider the Art Center as a Board member I accepted with honor and gratitude. In my short term we will have accomplished re-modeling the interior for exhibitions and classrooms, both integral and essential in our programs that we provide the community of Sarasota. Art is an important part of our life and is part of the notoriety of Sarasota. The Art Center offers individuals a creative outlet to express their inner feelings.
Along with the brick and mortar changes, we are experiencing changes in our Board and additions in our staff. Due to health challenges and attrition we are recruiting new members to join our Board this year. With our staff we have added a Development Director and Youth Programs Coordinator. This, along with our committed group volunteers, has allowed us to keep the organization on track and be more versatile with our programs.
We are all looking forward to working with new board members and excited about the fresh approach they will have to build our organization.
I love Sarasota! This is home to many who stuck their toe in the sand and stayed. Art Center Sarasota has the same effect....once you have walked through the doors and experienced the exhibits, classes and energy of the center you just want to be a part of it.
Billue Guignard
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. 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 we received funds from donors to renovate an underused space for a second classroom. Our students are very excited that we are able to offer more classes simultaneously.

The youth program, called “Creative Kids” includes a 10 week summer art camp and art class on Saturdays 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. Special events that raise funds for the center such as iconcept- a fashion show of outfits created by artists from unconventional materials and Artists at Work which lets the audience watch as artists create masterpieces, focus on promoting local artists.
This year we were honored to receive 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.

Short Term Success TBA
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

 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 encourage individual creative expression and provide the accessible and visual art opportunities.
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 a variety of locations and backgrounds.
2. Encourage visitors to return throughout the year by bringing new and different exhibitions to the Art Center from 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
Category Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Visual Arts Exhibitions
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 see 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.
 
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.
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.
Description
EDUCATION
This program consists of adult art classes and workshops, lectures 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  known and come to Sarasota just to teach. Workshops are attended by local and seasonal residents as well as visitors who come to Sarasota to learn from the masters.
The youth programs called “Creative Kids” include 10 weekly sessions of summer camp and a Saturday afternoon class during the school year.
The center offers the education programs at affordable costs to be more accessible to a broader audience. Scholarships are offered when funding is available.
Budget $127,687

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 youth class that is offered on Saturday afternoons for ages 6-12, has grown in popularity to an average of nine students per week. The class, offered on a drop in basis, gives budding artists more time to be creative outside of school. The Art Center is very pleased with this number and will continue to offer this class during the school year.


Comments
Program Comments by Organization
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.
This year we have added Slice of Art tours for adults with special needs. Specially adapted programs are offered to Lighthouse Manasota and the Mental Health Community Center. Both organizations have taken part in the program many times and find it is a true benefit to their participants.
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. Costs for shipping, curating and materials can be up to $25,000 or more for a single exhibit.

Governance Comments by Organization
We were fortunate this year to bring on four new board members who have really made a difference. The new members truly have a passion for what the organization provides to the community and work towards bringing greater visibility and funds to the center as advocates.
Several board members will be cycling off this year and we hope to replace them with equally involved community members.
 
One problem we are facing in the organization is the lack of enough classroom space. The education program is growing, especially with the  additional youth programs now offered all year long. An underused space was renovated into a new classroom which has helped.
 
Ideally, with the interest in making the Bayfront more of a culture center, we would like to someday add a second floor to the building to increase classroom and office space. We would also like to have a dedicated gallery to house our permanent art collection of artists who made Sarasota famous.
