The Ringling, Center for Asian Art Sarasota

John Ringling opened his private museum to the public in 1931, sharing the art he and his wife, Mable, collected during their travels. Currently managed by Florida State University, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art needed mo space to house the Asian art collection and related educational initiatives. The Center for Asian Art includes an addition and major renovation to the museum’s west wing galleries. SGH performed a condition assessment and evaluated thermal performance of the existing west wing enclosure. We also consulted on the building enclosure for the new addition clad with green terra-cotta.
