The Fine Arts Society of Sarasota and The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall present public art & backstage tours at the Van Wezel. The tours are guided and offer a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of the Van Wezel. View the movable orchestra pit, dressing rooms, hydraulic lifts, and the " Green Room " where visiting performers relax between shows. In addition to the backstage tour, visitor’s have the unique opportunity to view most of the FASS Art Collection. This expansive collection chronicles the rich and historic art created by artists who have lived and worked in the Sarasota area at one time or another. Many of these artists have had their art work exhibited in national and international art shows and museums.
