FRIENDS SOCIETY

For more than 35 years, the Van Wezel Foundation, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, and the City of Sarasota have partnered together to deliver arts education for learners of all ages and all backgrounds. Together, we are proud to partner on the vision for a new performing arts center in the heart of the Bay Park. Please help us to continue to share the arts and make them accessible, by bringing teaching artists and programs to classrooms and community organizations across Southwest Florida. Join the Friends Society and show your love for the arts!
