You'll always find a good show at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art because of its fabulous permanent collection of Baroque art, its equally fabulous (but less serious) collection of circus memorabilia, and the lovingly restored mansion of John and Mable. You can also count on special exhibitions.

Right now, "American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell" is on view and continues through Sept. 8. It features 53 paintings and four sculptures by 42 artists from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum and covers the dramatic decades in the 20th century when American artists came into their own, claiming a distinctive voice that didn't try to mimic the assertive European chorus. Shown is Georgia O'Keeffe's Yellow Leaves, 1928, oil on canvas.

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, at 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with extended hours to 8 p.m. Thursdays. Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $5 for children. It includes entry to the art museum, historic Ca d'Zan mansion and the Circus Museum. Admission is $10 for adults from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursdays. (Ca d'Zan isn't open during extended hours.) Admission is free Monday to the art museum only; (941) 359-5700 or ringling.org.

  4. Dia de los Muertos celebration in Dunedin canceled this year by hurricane

    Events

    Chalk up one more closure to Hurricane Irma: The huge Dia de los Muertos Fiesta originally planned for Saturday in Dunedin has been scrapped for what would have been its 25th year.

    At last year’s Dia de los Muertos, Casa Tina owner Tina Marie Avila (crouching) shows her “Ofrenda,” or Day of the Dead alter. What would have been the 25th annual Dia de los Muertos Fiesta on Saturday had to be canceled this year because of Hurricane Irma. The folk festival will be back next year.
