The Ringling College of Art & Design Archives aims to chronicle the story, impact, and path to preeminence of the College in Sarasota and the art and design community at large.
We play a vital role in documenting the college’s long-standing mission of preparing students to be discerning visual thinkers and ethical practitioners in their chosen area of art and design.
By building, describing, and making available collections of historical significance, the Archives will preserve and contextualize the history of Ringling College for future generations of campus community members and researchers.
