Thank you to Sarasota Magazine for featuring the Van Wezel Foundation’s vision for the future Sarasota Performing Arts Center as a part of the story “Ambitions Plans for Our Cultural Treasures Will Transform Sarasota as We Know It.”
While still in the early planning stages, the new performing arts center is “a once in a lifetime” opportunity for the region with “…a 2,250-seat main theater…, a 400-seat smaller one, a 10,000-square-foot education and lifelong learning center and multiple outdoor public performance spaces. (And, yep, a center aisle, long demanded by many Van Wezel attendees, is part of the package.) In all, it’s a 230,000-square-foot venue.”
