Museums & Exhibition Spaces
The College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance is closely tied to the museum world through the FSU Museums—the Museum of Fine Arts on campus and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. All FSU museums provide fertile ground for research of original art. In addition, they offer opportunities to learn, firsthand, about all aspects of museum operations including management, collections care, curatorial and interpretive processes, museum education, public programs, catalogue publishing, public relations, and museum technology. To complement the rich museum resources, the College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance has originated Museum Studies at FSU, a certificate program designed to augment a graduate-level degree with theoretical and practical experience in various museum careers.
